Mack bulldog ornament model

Question

Hi All,

My father was recently given a Mack bulldog ornament. He would like to know how old it is and which model Mack it came from. Unfortunately we have not been able to find it online. I was hoping someone could help.

Thanks heaps!

The chest patent number 87931 "long" ear dog goes from the 30's until 1979.  After that the patent number was changed and the ears were made "short".

Would have been used on all sort of Mack models such as A, B, C, L, F, R, U etc.

Nearly all Mack models prior to 1979  used the long ear dog. 

A,B, early B,C,D,E,F,  early F,H,L,M,N,R all varities,U,W,WS

1933 was the first full model year of use for the Bulldog radiator cap ornament. Included on the list of trucks would be, AB, AC and all variations of that model.  

Then you include the Fire Apparatus, 

All of the number series, then the letters and finally the two letter models.

That dog really got around!
