As a native Iowan, I've always been drawn to the Jewett as the only machine (other than early Olivers) made in the state. I got this rough Jewett 1 (with the Duplex tags) from fellow native Iowan Herman Price in 2018. It'll take some time to get it up and running again, but after dusting it off for some pictures, I was surprised to find that the serial number 1786 (or 1726) actually IS visible on top. I had previously thought that the serial-number badge that is on later models had rusted-off somehow.
