Default WICO question

I just got a Wico EK on an engine and noticed that the oval tag that is normally rivoted to the top is rivoted on the front of the mag. I don't think I have seen one like this before and was wondering if anyone knew why this one would be like this?

Thanks Tom Winland Ohio

The proper mag for a 6 HP 1928 Hercules is the regular WICO EK with a rectangular tag on the top. It should have a kill button front plate.

got another question. This early EK mag came on a 2HP Jager that has 95% of the original paint and decal on it. The serial # is 301965 and there is no letter of the model on the tag. It has the spark plug in the head instead of the mag bracket also. Do you think this could be the original mag on this engine?

The Jaeger you mention was one of the first Hercules built engines to use the Wico EK magneto. According to the Jaeger literature, they started using the WICO magneto March 1, 1923. By the way, those Jaegers with the spark plug in the head are rare birds. That feature was only on the 2 HP Jaeger brand engines in the 300,000 to 303,000 serial number range.
