Maybe it was made on the day before Inventory at the factory….where they had to get rid of the “older stuff”, and start the year with all new…old parts bins used up, to get them out of the parts inventory..BEFORE the Auditors see them…

I envisioned such a scenario as this. I guess if I were going to sell it on eBay I’d call it a “type 13 with some type 12 parts”. However I’m going to restore it and make it my primary user plane instead. I guess I can assume the body is from 1925ish and the iron 1920 as those seem to be the most precisely dated components.
