    According to Bill Goforth's book, the patent dates indicate a small frame hammerless second model, seventh variation, but the coil spring, etc. and serial number make it a third model, first variation made in 1910, so apparently there was a transition period in regard to the markings.

    Thanks hrf for the quick reply , if it was built in a transitional period that could explain my problem of finding definitive information on it . Again Thanks , jlmar
