Look at the early number 14 in the picture. It  has a large brass tag,I have never seen this collector as there are many I could never find.

Early Gray collector in the shape of a Bell, Very Rare. The earliest collectors the whole bottom came off. Its a quick way to spot a early one.

Gray number 20

I compared the measurements on my model 14 to the page in the Gray book you posted and it is different in all dimensions. Bummer, but good to know. Glad I posted this topic. Hopefully, everyone will learn from the info you gave us.  Mark
