Monarch Name May Have Been Used Into the 1930s

I am writing in regard to a statement on Page 22 of the November 2016 issue of Farm Collector. The article states that, “the Monarch name was retained for a time, but in 1929 the name was dropped and the characteristic Monarch steering wheel was replaced by steering levers.” I believe this is incorrect. The Monarch name was used through 1931, which was the last year for the Model 75. My Monarch 75 is a 1930 model, and has the steering wheel. Thanks for your time. I love the magazine!
