Answer
Hi Terry,

After reviewing your two photo's, I can tell you that the metal label is one that was used by the Kittinger factory back in the early days, circa 1920's 30's.  The number that is stamped
on the leg appears to be 1954, but I am unable to find a reference for it in my factory catalogs. As I previously mentioned, someone could have applied it to the frame.

Sorry, but I wish I could be of more help.
