Look over the Premo catalogs on this site but w/ a quick check looks as if the 1st year for the Premo #9 to show up was in 1913 http://piercevaubel.com/cam/catalogs/1913premocatlp399.htm

Here's the link for all the catalogs found at Pierce's site. http://piercevaubel.com/cam/catalogsall.htm .

Hope this helps and have fun researching!
