Help me with the history of my 12-string Jazz guitar from 1914

Hi everyone,

I live in Sweden and have an Epiphone Jazz guitar 12-string from 1914 in mint condition. I can't find any serial number. The guitar was made in Poland, but i want to know the specific Model name. The label says "Gitara Jazz typ III". How many guitars were made in Poland and why ? Where in Poland was the factory?  How about the value today?

It appears to be an Eastern European body, maybe a Delfil? Delfi? I think they were made in Poland. The neck appears to be an Asian Epiphone, Japanese, Korean. Someone put them together. Where did you get 1914? Epiphone wasn’t making guitars then, and I don’t think anyone on the planet was making F hole guitars then.
