I have both. They look the same on the outside, but they used different motors. The Birtman motor or the Lamb motor. Open it up and take a pic (from the side) of the motor and I'll tell you. The bag was 5009.

Here it is....the motor,

The bag was missing when it arrived. But in one picture, it looked like 20-5009.

Anyone else?

Does anyone else recognize the motor (Birtman ?) and do you have some correct vacuum bags for sale.

The bags are part number 5009. You can still find them on eBay. The motor is a Birtman motor so it's very rare in that nice condition yours in in.

Early 1957,

Later in 1957 was when Whirlpool ,at the behest of Sears, did a takeover of Birtman electric, which made their vacuums, mixers and blenders, Whirlpool spun the mixers off to Hamilton Beach, Whirlpool also took over Seeger refrigeration, then Servel to get the patent on the ice maker.Whirlpool closed down Birtmans motor factory and bought motors from Lamb electric.
