I need some help getting a date on a Washburn Mandolin, rounded back, inside it has the paper label, The Washburn, Best in the World . . . Columbian Exposition label with No. 18636 on it.  Can't tell model number, looks like 317 LB.  Would appreciate any assistance on when it was made, etc.

How many ribs does it have, and how many inlays on the fingerboard? That would enable to determine the style #..It dates from around 1910-1915.
