Likely a No. 6. Model numbers were displayed on the paper table, which is removable (and easily lost). Mine included a paper table, but only a decal for New York Import & Export, a company that thrived in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
This typewriter could be a No. 7, though. The serial number, 805, indicates an early manufacture date.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Fay-Sholes 6 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Fay-Sholes Serial Number page and the Fay-Sholes 6 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
