Anniversary Knock Off - 10-15-2019, 08:16 PM

Can folks tell me the different variations of Brunswick Anniversary tables? I've got one I'm about to put some work into but some things are standing out as odd.
Oliver L. Briggs & Sons Electric Cushion Fast K-66
One piece side rail, no center pocket casting
2 stretchers between the pedestals
The indention in the corner casting where the pocket fits into and gets bolted is quite small, I would assume it should be the same size as a Gold Crown pocket.

I'm sure someone could have put the K-66 on it sometime in it's life. I was surprised not to find Monarch cushions on it. The nose is sitting quite high at over 1.5 inches. This is a rough number though, I didn't have the rail bolted down when I measured it.
Speaking of bolting down rails, These rails have a threaded disc that is screwed into the rail with 2 wood screws, not the figure 8 style on a Gold Crown I.

My brain is telling me this is not a Brunswick table. I'm still going to put some love into it and make it look and play sharp. Just curious what the aficionados have to say. Thanks for your time, and as always. Take it easy. Julio

Kinda weird. Briggs went out of business around 1930-ish iirc. They made some nice stuff but they were long gone by the time Anniv.-style tables were around.
