It was planked by Mansell on February 28th, 1920. Roy canvased it on March 6th, 1920 and applied the first filler coat on the same day. Roy applied the second filler coat on May 1st, 1920. Huard added the rails on May 8th, 1920 and the original color was green. It shipped to the Kaufman and Baer on May 6th, 1920.

Benson,
I don't see 13966 on the list in the thumbnail. The numbers jump from 13960 to 13969. Thanks, Gil
 
I posted the wrong record the first time. It has been corrected now. Sorry about that.
