Default Anyone seen a bessemer like this?

This bessemer looks more or less like a regular bessemer except it doesnt have chain oilers and there seems to be no holes for a tag on the base and the Bessemer logo is different then anything i have seen before.

Instead of reading The Bessemer Grove City Pa it just says Bessemer.

Here is a photo:

Any thoughts on how many of this style are around?

I will get more photos when i get back home, its out now but didnt have the camera with me to get a better shot.

and i also should have mentioned there is no raised line surrounding the Bessemer unlike some bessemers that just have Bessemer on them

which i guess is evident in the picture

also another feature,

the crosshead slides sit on the top of the engine base and are not sunk in the base,

the crosshead looks more like an oilcity crosshead than a bessemer crosshead,

if you look in the picture on the top left you can see the crosshead slide and spacer at the top of the bedplate,
