Default FBM dynamo

Hello Just purchased a Fairbanks Morse "Three Rivers Dynamo". 2Kw, 115 Volt, Type TR, No 11615Y. 1600 Rpm

Does anybody know how I can date this?

Thanks a lot in advance. Paul

I have one virtually identical except mine is 1500W. According to ptotos in C.H. Wendel's Book 100 Years of Fairbanks Morse Engine Technology, these were in service around 1900 until ?. I like to say 1900 not knowing any better.
