Here’s the paper wiring diagram from a Century S2-10 Model 55. Is the number on the bottom the month and year? January 1927. The ones in the gallery are listed as earlier years but maybe those are rough  estimates. I’m donating the fan for a fund raiser and want to be able to list it factually. Thanks in advance.

I fully believe that the 1-27 is a date and probably the date when a new order of paper wiring diagram labels were ordered and, in the case of the label you posted, 12,000 were ordered.   I do see dates in the gallery and from other sources as being too early.   I think people look at the motor tag and date to the PATENT date on the motor tag which is not a manufacturing date.
Here are some paper tags from 5 speed Centurys.   Yours is from a later three speed I can see.




This is from a 16" 5 speed century from Nick Denny and I think it's probably the enclose motor version.

Thanks Steve. I’m calling it a 27 then.👍.   I didn’t even think about the M being a Roman numeral either.
