my upper casting turns 101 years old tommorow, it's 1-31-
17, of course
here in new zealand it will be 31-1-2017 as we do things
properly... I have a
second case with the same date in it, did they change
these often?

My best guess is they used the same casting date for
several hundred
cases and canged it every 3 months or so. I have been told
there are only
4-5 different casting dates for the entire 1917 year

Mike, have a look on my '17 upper case.
