Comet 140

"The Comet Trading Company's first broom was the Comet 140, this being the number of models that Keitch and Horton had tested prior to its release."
-- Quidditch Through the Ages (QA9)

The first of the Comet series of racing broomsticks

The broom number reflected the number of prototypes tested during its development. The Comet 140 (released in 1929) incorporated the patented Horton-Keitch braking charm (QA9).
