I forgot to bid on those. Just for the base plates. The picture in the book only shows Stage IV 215s. Maybe the first Stage III 215s used Stage I base plates?  As far as I can tell there is no obvious manufacturing difference between any of the 215 hangers. The older ones just look older.

Technically Stage IV hangers are still being produced - the 215 hangers haven't changed since then. They just fit them to Stage IX baseplates and they look identical.

Now...how do we find out what Stage III 215s look like?  The picture in the book shows a picture of stage IV 215s which look like this pair.  The picture in the book of the Stage III 169s looks to be different from the pictured Stage IV 215s and the 215s here.

Are these pair of 215s Stage III? Which may explain the Stage I base plates?  If so, then we know that the 215 hangers have always had the same hanger from Stage III to the present.  For whatever that's worth.

Or, were the Stage III hangers a slightly less refined shape?

There were removeable kingpins by Stage II so those are early baseplates with later hangers.

*stage V thru VIII state that 101's were still available, i'm assuming this is supposed to read 109's but the book says 101's, must've been a misprint?

IMO it isn't a misprint. A stage I 109 and a stage whatever 101 are defo different.  The 101 has extra strengthening where the hanger meets the bush cup.  I can't post a pic coz the 109 is the only T hanger I don't have. I'm sure one of the other bros will do a fab job with some pics, and show just how different they actually are. (-_-)

reason i'm questioning it is the 101 isn't mentioned in the stage I list then all of the sudden @ stage V-VIII they are saying the 101 is still available, then @ stage IV the 109 is mentioned again? a little confusing to say the least...
