Considering they only made 7,000 in the previous year (1896 Remington started manufacture of the No.7) I'm figuring this to be made in Jan/Feb of 1897.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
