From what I found it was sold in 1902.
Thanks all for your help.

Do not put anything with water in it on the machine itself. I think you can use kerosene to clean it. I bought mine at Walmart labeled as "Lamp Oil, unscented". Wait for someone more experienced than me to confirm that. I just wanted to give you that "no water" warning right away.

Thank you so much.
I do keep a spray bottle for the insides of SM's with 70 to 90% Kerosene (depends on how long I need to let it set) and the other 10 to 30% SMO.

Default Serial number location?

Please, someone, tell me where to locate the serial number on the Minnesota A and the non A(no letter).
thanks

I am not positive about the Minnesota A's specifically, but did answer at https://www.quiltingboard.com/8478820-post12.html of places to look. It looks like at least a couple in this thread the serial number is on the front slide plate.
