1921 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style F4
Serial 64386
Factory Order number: 11419


This mandolin is interesting because it has a truss rod much earlier than conventional wisdom would dictate. The serial places this mandolin roughly in the middle of 1921, which would be 6 months prior to 1922 when the truss rods started appearing with shiny nickel silver covers.
