This was used as an engine to send to companies to try out on their equipment. normally 3 or so engine were sent to every company that requested them and they would try them out and see if they work for the use. very nice to have if you collect Clinton engines. the only difference is the tag nothing else normally. only employees could get the sample engines after the testing they were not allowed to sell them. that or keep them as a display. can you post some pics?

if you go over to YouTube and lookup (Clinton sample for George) there is some information on Clinton sample engines. This is on ZippoVarga's site.
