Default Billy Boy model hit & miss model engine

This is the third model engine I have picked up of this style. I have 2 others that were built by Bill Burnett and I think this is one of his also. My other two Billy Boy models have 3 digit serial #'s but this one has none. The other 2 are also the more traditional design with 2 flywheels Do any of you know much history on these engines, maybe how many different models Mr. Burnett built and what kind of production numbers there were. Are there any pictures of others available to get an idea of different styles. Any information is appreciated

This engine was modified a little with a brass drip oiler painted flywheels and a new oak base.

And this one was the first I picked up last year. I gave it to my son who is serving in the US Coast Guard on Lake Huron Saginaw Station, Bay City MI.
