Pretty cool! Patents listed from 1908 to 1920.

When was this set made?

Hard to read the serial number for sure in the photo. What is it? We can look it up with that.

Hmmm, the chart doesn't have a list for the Model B, but it does state that it was discontinued in 1923.

So... "Early 1920's!"

BTW, if you PM me an email address, I can send you the serial number chart. It is only a one page PDF.
