Chassis serial numbers 1926 Master's start at 1412093

Chassis serial numbers 1927 115's start at 163880

So may be a 1926.

From this thread where your question was asked again to get better results

Dear Chris:

The frame number you give of 1,492,833 was issued by Buick to a 1926 Model 26. Buick built 10,531 model 26's plus 1 for export that year.
