Thanks Ron. I think it is older than the 90's as there were many new bobbin styles that were much better came out then I thought. I bought it with a few other hard to find Herter's tying tools. I got a hard to find half hitch, wing pliers, scissors, plastic handle bobbin with Herter's stamped on it, and two hackle pliers. These are plainly marked with Herter's name and I have seen them in catalogs and on the web. This made me think it was a Herter's but I have never seen a all metal bobbin from Herter's, only Thompson.
Here is another I need to find out about. Can't find any information it either.
I have these in my collection as well. The Thompson metal bobbins I have two of one with a metal spool and the other with few plastic spools included. The wodd bobbin is a Perry Bobbin made long ago. The long skinny is a Thompson. I got a hard to find Thompson Bobbin rest for the metal bobbin as well.
I have these as well but not as old. This is the Wasatch version of S&M bobbin. I have both short and long S&M in plain and with Wasatch wood.
And I am trhowing this one in as well. It is cool as it has a foam insert where the thread goes through. This keeps the thread and tube clean all the time. Nice heavu feel as well.
And I have the Norvise as well.
