Herbster Furnace

Does anyone have information for Herbster Products Co. furnace. I have a serial number of 6115. How old is this unit? I’m thinking 1961 manufacturer date? Any help would be appreciated.

My guess is 1961 also. Based on the little research I did, it appears that there was a product patented in the late 40’s by G.B. Herbster that was a combo laundry dryer and furnace. It was noted in Popular Science in 1954 being manufactured by Herbster Products Co. Probably didn’t go over very well and '61 could have been in it’s later years. Just a guess on my end.
