Could very well be. It does look like an earlier one. I owned a few of them (a 1942 B1-3, a 1946 B1-6, and a 1947 B1-7). That's the original Rototiller brand - every other garden tiller just borrows the name. They are the original. Graham-Paige (the car company) bought Rototiller and started making that model (B1-6) in 1946. Frazer bought that same brand around a year later. In 1947, I believe, Frazer made them, and they continued making them up until the 1980s. The basic design never changed, although some smaller changes were made periodically over the years (control levers, steering clutches, etc.). They were SUPER expensive to purchase. If I remember correctly, depending on the model, they were over $400 in the 1940s, and over $3000 by the 1980s. Don't quote me on that, however - I'd have to look it up as it's been a long time. Having said that, they are the best tiller I've ever used, although they are a beast.
