Far from being the oldest but the one stored in my shed is a 1913 model.
The tag identifies it as a "CASE 40".

While I doubt whether this one is the earliest or not, but there is one at an upcoming auction in Canada. The auction also has a Minneapolis, an Allwork, a Titan, a Gray Drum Drive, a Happy Farmer, and also a Nichols and Sheppard. There is not really a picture visible of the serial plate on the Case, but just thought I'd inform you.

Here is a link to the auction:

That is one serious collection! BTW That N&S tractor is one of the later rebadged Lauson products, sold by N&S. A very high quality collection to be sure.
