Default Engine ID help needed

I'm new to posting so please bear with me. The engine in the picture is coming up on an auction this spring. The lady who owns it says it's a Hippe-Steiner, a couple fellows I've shown the picture to claim it's a Christenson Badger. Indeed it's quite like the Christenson picture in Wendels book. There aren't any tags or numbers on the engine that I could find, other than 6HP on the side of the water hopper. Thanks in advance.

Gotta be a Christensen...Looks just like everyone I've ever seen...Might have been re-taged at one time, but it's a Christensen.

of thing that engine collectors dreams are made of.If the auction has much exposure it will probably take deep pockets to buy it.Good luck to you !

Thanks for the help guys. Now I'm wondering what a Hippe-Steiner is and how it's different from a Steiner. I see it's in the Index of manufacturers in Wendels, but that's the only place I found that it shows up.

Hippe Steiner is an earlier version of the Steiner Longlife engine. They are similar to each other, but differant, neather one made a sideshaft.

Can you tell me the differences between them? Are the Hippe-Steiners also known as Steiner Longlife engines? The picture is a 12 Hp Steiner Longlife also on this auction. Behind it is a 10 HP Fuller and Johnson.

For what it is worth, the Steiner engine looks to me to be a Lauson, made in Wisc. I'm no expert but a buddy of mine has a large number of them and it looks exactly like a mid-teens Lauson, even down to the type of cart.

Steiner's and Lawson's were only built about 10 miles away from each other. This could be the re3ason they look so much alike.
