Serial should be under the BB. From what I've pieced together, it looks like it's between 1913 and 1921 (crank nut on non-drive side dating the former and badge dating the latter).

I think your correct carlitos60 on your Iver being a 1915/16. I have a 1915 Iver racer that I know for sure is at least a 1915 because it is the Chater Lea model and 1915 was the first year that Iver Johnson introduced this model. My serial # is 262845 and yours is 266xxx, fairly close in production.......................see it here: http://boulderartgallery.com/Iver_Johnson_Bicycle_Collection/IverJohnson_Page_24.html Pete in Fitchburg

Hi carlitos60,
I don't recall Iver ever making a fork with open drop ends.........................any Iver fork that I've ever seen with open drop ends were done by owners. Pete in Fitchburg

Mine is before 1913 as the crank nut moved to the other side that year at S/N 195xxx, so I figure 1912, which averages to about 23k bikes per year in the interim accepting yours as 1915. I have no idea what likely numbers were back then, but that seems believable to me for a larger firm (or maybe sets mine back a few years).
