Interesting Question. Now that I own one and it has Barth RSV Engraved on my lighted handle. Pretty sure it wouldn't be receivership? Really Sexy Version?? As I look through the tote of paperwork I'll keep that question in mind and see if something gels.

Very long story, including trolleys in San Diego. Bill Prinz was a very unusual "entrepreneur"; Read the Business Week story.

Thank you Steve for Spelling it out AGAIN. I can never remember what RSV stands for on this site. Here are a few more abbreviations. Dana's suggestion (Really Sexy Version) is not on the list. That is the coolest interpretation though.
