If you want to get into other 'interesting' threads there's also Acme, 29 deg. And a fun one I have to cut occasionally, Buttress thread.

As I've been told the story; Harley Davidson also had their own proprietary thread pitches in the teens. After the war department bought a bunch of Harleys for use during WW1 and found out that only Harley nuts and bolts would fit Harleys, Messrs. Harley and Davidson were told 'straighten up and fly right'. Something along the lines of 'Standardize or we aren't buying anymore Harleys' that brought H-D into the mainstream.
Harley still hadn't "straightened up" by WWII, as evidenced by the number of 1/4"-24 fasteners on my old 45 flatty.

Nah... Probably just NOS leftovers they wanted to use up before reordering.

Yep, you're right, brucstoudt. Acme is preferred when you want a thread that's robust and won't get clogged with dirt and stuff. Unlike a "V" thread, because of the Acme thread profile, it's pretty hard to ding 'em up so bad they won't work.

Another odd one I cut is a "buttress" thread. They're usually seen on old screw jacks and the breech plugs of LARGE breech loading cannons. The 90 deg. face is the load bearing side and the 45 deg. face acts like a gusset or shelf bracket.
