I don't have the answer but I have a B17 and a B15 on my desk now...B15 was bought new in early 1950s, and a B17 on a Hetchins.
B17 - XUV that's all - oval badge.
B15 - A10 and ZOB1 - oval badge, the O could be a U or V.
I know for certain the B15 was bought new around 1951 (my Dad bought it).
The B17 is an old one but actual date purchased is unknown.
Both have bag loops.
