Star and Advanced were one and the same. Not sure what years they used the different names. In the late 1930s they definitely used Advanced Manufacturing. I believe in the late 1940s they were back to Star Manufacturing. Here is an image of your machine from the 1939 Advanced Manufacturing catalog. I didn't find it in the 1936 catalog. Production would have been suspended in 1942 due to WWII. So, approximately 1939 would be a good estimate to its date.
