I diagnosed type 6, based on the fact that the “No” and “6” are close together. Type 7 and later had them spread apart. The stamping on the iron is also consistent with type 6.

If you posted photos of the front of the frog, lateral lever and under the frog it would help

OTOH, the type study I referenced suggests that the number should be on the heel of a No 6 at that date.

I’ve got 5 No 6’s and was thinking I need to thin the herd, but … wanna sell it? :-)
