I do not know how this can be sorted out but I find it impossible to believe that Jacobson #12696 was built in Warren and that their next engine #12697 was built in Titusville, especially when we know that the move from Warren to Titusville was not a planned event, but a rushed event following the burning down of the Jacobson plant of Warren in March 1923.Consecutive numbered Jacobsons. The one on the skid is s.n. 12696 tagged Warren Pa., and the one on the cart is s.n. 12697 tagged Titusville Pa. Both are 3 1/2 hp. They were shown at Coolspring.
Hi Steve, here is the explanation:Hi Dennis, I have a question regarding some engine tag pictures on your Jacobson registry.
The tag with serial no. ending in 257 is definitely mine. The other tag ending in 271 IS my tag BUT with a different serial no.
No doubt they are both my tags but one is not my serial no.
