Default Info. needed on old Reel Power Mower

I am in the process of cleaning out my Grandfathers house and I have found a Power Reel Mower in the basement. It is still in the box never used. It appears to be a Penney's model RS100-2. It has a small Briggs engine..I have not removed from the original box so I can't see to much. Does enyone out there know what year something like this minght be??

Allen,

Couldn't find any reference to your mower in my book "Lawn Mowers 1948-1962" compiled by Alan C. King. I'm guessing it's from the 1950's era but you could probably get a better idea by posting the model and serial number of the Briggs engine if you can get at it without tearing the box apart.

I have the information off the motor know that I have it at my house. it has a Briggs Model 60102 Type 940082 Serial # 6112110. Does enyone know what year this may have been produced. I have located the owners manual and it appears to be sold at J.C. Pennys and produced by E.T. Rugg. and still in the box never used.
