Troughs with an incomplete MDFCTA in the inscription

On most troughs that contain the "Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association" name as an inscription the full name of the organisation is used. For some reason, on some troughs the full name is truncated. In some cases the word "METROPOLITAN" is omitted; in others the words "DRINKING FOUNTAIN" are omitted. In two examples, both parts are missing.
