What brand 3-spd hub is this? Is 3.3.3. a brand?girchygirchy

I was poking around on my dad's '73 3-speed, and got the goo away from the hub to read the insignia. All it says is 3.3.3., and under that "three speed hub F", then a patent number. The 3.3.3. marking is also on the cable stop attached to the chainstay, from which the cable emerges and goes to the hub. Was this a brand, or a model? The shifter, brakes, and levers are all Shimano.

A picture of the hub (sorry, cheap webcam):

The cable stop:

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'll look in my copy of Sutherlands Handbook for Bicycle Mechanics tonight, and let you know.
Great, thanks! (nm)girchygirchy
