Default Bosch Type 22 Magneto Help Needed

I have a Bosch Type 22 flick magneto and I'm wondering if anyone can help me with date of manufacture. The serial number is #1835404. Looks like a brass mounting base. Thanks for any help.

Small help--It is definitely after 1915.

This list of dates is fairly well known I think, probably refers to German-made Bosch.
I have a Type 22 No.1671140 which I know is original to its 1914 engine (it has the engine number stamped on it) and it fits this list i.e. 1913.

"After 1915" seems correct, but how did a wartime magneto get to Canada?

Thanks for the chart , any help is really appreciated. I had seen it and thought maybe I was missing something. Went back and took another look and noticed it also says "New York" in small stamped letters so I assume it came from or through the USA at some point. The mag must be original because it has original green paint same as the engine and you could tell the mag had never been off the engine. This mag is on a 7HP Manitoba engine if that helps. If anyone has a serial number list for Manitoba engines I'd appreciate if you could share it. Thanks for all of your input.
