Model Q, Nov 1925 to Nov 1933.. I can't really speak to how rare it is.
Teardrop-shaped Briggs' are kind cool, though.

Total production of the Model Q was only around 9000 units. So after 90 +/- years there are still quite a few around, but I certainly would not consider them common. It was the first flat head model that Briggs made.
I have one and have seen several of them here on the Stak.
Definitely worth saving.

Your engine was made in Feb of 1929.

You need to come up to the Boone show in 2 weeks.
