don't hand out the trophy yet - the wooden handle are older

1923 Monta first year of production
The Monta Mower was manufactured by the Montague Manufacturing Company of Traverse City MI.
The sales office was located in Grand Rapids MI. A wooden handle was used until the start of World War II.
After the War a wire handle was adopted and in the 1950's rubber grips were added.
The company was gone by 1962.
