Mutt - yes, the coils were probably made in a variety of configurations for different equipment.|
What struck me about Bill Lopoulos's www.magnetoparts.com was the rewinding. I know nothing about him, just found his website today.
Since there were 3 different coils used on the Hummer-series, it seemed like having an original rewound might be a better bet than buying a new one.
The coil in the armature of the Bosch FF4 magneto in my Henderson died recently, and I installed a (Jack Hurt in Calif, highly recommended by the Hen community) rewound armature. Happy to report the Hen is running great now. Maybe Jack can rewind Hummer-series coils too.

Be very careful when ya buy one of the outboard motor coils.
The wires come out the wrong end almost all of the time. And
the location that the spark plug wire solders to, sometimes
ends up on the front or in the way of the magneto frame
itself. I have a well known magneto guy that is supposed to
be making me new coils (upper and lower for the 58 and later
models) He told me he should have something in April (2016)
I'm still waiting on him..............
