    Default D17000 Original Owner?

    My dad has a burning desire to know who the original owner of one of his toys was and how it was utilized.
    The nameplate with SN 3S1395 and "City of Salem" narrows it down a bit but not much. He found this in Michigan, however could have come from any one of the 26 cities in USA named Salem.

    Any thoughts on year of manufacture? I did a little research and think it may by 1940's?
    Has anyone ever tried to trace down original owner through Cat customer service? Is this even feasible?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Close as I could get would be 1946.
    My 1945 list ends at 3S1339
    8Sxxxx series start in 1947
