Default Reid type A 15 hp price F.O.B Oil City

Would anyone happen to know what a new Reid type A 15 hp cost in 1913? Or any Oil Field engine of about that time? Thanks.

So there is no information on what an oilfield engine cost between 1900 and 1920. I have looked on the internet and found nothing.

Dale,
I looked in the 1924 Frick and Lindsay catalog. It lists prices for all of the parts but not for complete units. The cost of the unit would have depended on what options it came with. Probably an original bill of sale or delivery letter would be the only place that the total sale price would be found. Sorry.

Every catalog I have lists all the specs you might want to know - with "Price available on application".

I too would like to know, our 15 hp is a 1909.
Maybe we will never know, seems weird there isn't something laying around with a price list on it
