|The earliest stamped steel Westy was their 1912 model and have motor tags with a 1911 micro date and last patent of 1910. I don't know what changes if any might have been made between these early models and the year or so later models but the very first have a narrow switch handle and a narrower cage, possibly some cages without the reverse bottom curve and the finish was a gunmetal grey. Oh, and the early SS Westys have bronze bearing carriers, not pot metal.
