The company does not appear to have numbered its mowers or used any systematic dating process.

There were relatively few Atco models and it seems that the company was able to run its extensive service operations by simply knowing the type of mower and the cutting width.

When mower production resumed around 1947 the company adopted a systematic approach to numbering its machines using a small detachable brass plate on the frame.

Atco made relatively few different designs at any one time so simply knowing the size and year would be enough to identify the specification of the machine and which spares might be needed to repair it.

When rotary mowers were introduced by the company in the late 1950s they were designated with a similar number followed by an "R" - for rotary - to avoid confusion with conventional machines.

Later, and into the 1930s, smaller Villiers "Midget" engines have CY or similar prefixes that also seem to be mower specific.

For these reasons it is normally only possible to date Atco mowers to an approximate age within the known production period.

White also made sewing machines for other companies, including Sears Roebuck. American manufacturers couldn't compete with Japanese companies making cheaper sewing machines, and by 1960 most of the American manufacturers were out of business.

White merged with Husqvarna Viking, a Swedish firm.The final number after the / is not always present and there is some debate among collectors over its significance.When it is present it is typically one higher than the second "B", for example 1455/6 or 1754/5.It says "White Rotary," and there's a metal plate on it with the serial number FR2657168. It was the company's most popular machine and was made until the 1950s. Business declined in the 1950s as foreign-made machines became available in the United States. Thomas White began producing sewing machines in 1858 in Templeton, Mass.The simplest solution was to use a series of suffixes to the main numbering system.
