To anyone, I have an Edison disc player, trying to put a date on it. This player was given to me by my grandfather many years ago. It has a brass plate on the inside, numbers and letters on the plate are as follows- 9-19 SM 45742, if someone has an answer for me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance Alan.

All we can say, without photos, is that your phonograph dates to 1919 or later: that was the year Edison revised their entire line. The first mark on the plate should be a letter, not a number: e.g., B-19, C-19, H-19, S-19, etc.
Unfortunately, there is no specific manufacturing data for many of the Disc Phonographs: many models were withdrawn from production in 1927, though.
I hope this has been of some help to you, at least.
