1915* Chicago Closed Frame Model Serial # 73715 1915* Chicago Closed Frame Model typewriter, Serial # 73715 Richard Polt's 1915* Chicago Closed Frame Model typewriter. 2017-07-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1915* Chicago Closed Frame Model Serial # 73715 This is a pretty Chicago from my collection. It works fine except that on a few characters, the type cylinder doesn't turn far enough and the characters are displaced from their proper position on the page.

I'm guessing a manufacture date near the end of production. The highest Chicago serial number in Herman Price's data is 89284. The latest reference to the Chicago that I can find in Typewriter Topics is 1916, and sources say that production ended in 1917.
