Looking at the serial number (tied to a manufacture date) it appears that your machine was made right during the transition period of the labeling. This would not be a drop in quality control, rather, it is entirely possible that the production line was utilizing the remaining labels. As a result there could have been a short period of overlap during the switch. I did check the machines coming down the line today and they do have the labeling showing it was manufactured in Appleton, WI, USA.
No announcement yet.
Where is my "Made in USA" label on my Dynasty700?
