Marking: " CHROM      Hazet 772/2       Vanadium GERMANY D.B.P"

Release Button: on either side

Hubcap puller: exposed after pulling back handle

Decal: Hazet decal

Finish: Light Silver

NOTE: Sometime during 356A production (probably in 1956), Hazet received a

patent, and "D.B.P." was added and "angem" was dropped:

"CHROM Hazet 772/2 VANADIUM GERMANY D.B.P."

Most likely sequence in chronological order:

(1) all pre-1956 with release button for handle is located on the side opposite to the socket

two notable versions:

     a) "D.P.angem" with early release button position and early dark finish

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


     b) "D.P.angem" with early release button position and late lighter finish

(2) Patent received in 1956

(3) after patent received and "D.B.P." added to engraving and "angem" removed:

two notable versions:

     a) "D.B.P." with finish change (button in same "early" location)

     b) "D.B.P." with button position change

NOTE: CONFLICT with Eric's site; According to Jim Perrin's tool kit articles 356 Registry Vol. 23 #1 p.17 and Vol.24 #1 p.38 the "D.P. angem" marking on the lug wrench is correct up through 1956, and then it was changed to "D.B.P." in 1957.
