The Atwood-Coffee Catalogue, 6th ed., gives the issue date as 1930. Michigan 225 F. The American Vecturist Association owns the archive records of the Meyer and Wenthe Company, and it appears this is their work. Therefore, I'd go with this date.

Thanks Kushi.
I'm always surprised when something like this, which has been designed for continuous usage, turns up in such good condition.
