Has anyone ever seen one of these? It is marked #516 on the bottom so is 2 cups -- and had the PYREX® in caps and made in USA so I know it is vintage -- but there is not a single red mark or etched mark on it. Just wondered if it is a fluke. I have searched online but have not found anything about it but may not be using the correct terms in the search.

How about a pic?

I will try to get one posted tomorrow -- but is exactly like this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-PYREX-516-MEASURING-CUP-RED-LETTERI...

except not a mark on it for measuring -- D-handle, etc.

OMG -- it took me this long to finally get time to take some pictures of this cup...it is just so odd... not a mark on it for measuring!

But, as you can see it has the older PYREX and Made in the USA... Any thoughts about why this thing is unmarked?

Not sure if anyone is following this but I had this cup at the antique mall the other day and showed it to one of the guys who works there and has a booth full of old 50's Pyrex and such. He told me the marks have WASHED OFF -- he said that happened when people put them in the dishwasher! Now, I have a couple of older pieces of Pyrex and I have always put them in the dishwasher and I think they are still marked fine. But, you know, I'll bet I don't use one nearly as many times as a house wife did -- my mom cooked 2-3 meals a day, everyday and made cakes and pies etc. We got a dishwasher around 1970, I guess. Anyway -- interesting -- but devalues my "measuring" cup... might do some of my artwork on it instead!
