Formula to be used to determine year of manufacture on Case machines using six and seven digit serial numbers including 5700000 numbers:

Six digit s/ns:        use first and fourth digit, subtract three to determine production year.
Example:                                        Serial Number 309383 33-3=1930

Seven digit s/ns:  Subtract four from the first two digits of the serial number
Example:                                       Serial Number 4563214 45-4=1941
