Very interesting! The numbers provided fit my rough sense of how many have survived, with a few exceptions for models that went on to sell well for years after 1894 (Franklin, Smith Premier). The one item that really surprises me is an estimate of 10,000 for the International, which is extremely rare today. Were they all sold for scrap?!
