According to Russ Furstnow's book, the Model #1913 swivel was used in 1912-1913.

Colin-
Most of those look like 1914 and later swivels (but will work for you.)
On the end where the nut is, there is usually a number (1-12) which denotes the month the swivel was made.
1=January
2=February...

There is also a letter, which denotes the year.
F=1914
G=1915
H=1916
J=1917
K=1918
L=1919
M=1920
N=1921
P=1922
Q=1923
R=1924
S=1925
T=1926
U=1928

Notice there is no I or O

The second photo with the knurled grease cup looks like the earliest.

The fifth photo with the extension stud is from 1920 and later.

The last photo looks like a 1915 Ford Special mount.

What book are you talking about?

The first and third photos show swivels held together with a bolt and nut. This was introduced in 1924, as the earlier ones held together with a shaft and pressed on collar were prone to come apart in rough conditions.

This would indicate that the 1913 swivel was used over a wide span in time.

This info is in Russ Furstnow's book.

Colin-
Russ is currently on vacation and probably will not be available until after Chickasha.

You can email him directly.

1stnow at msn dot com

He also did a series of articles in the Ford Times in 2011-2012 covering speedometers from 1909-1915. The articles have color pictures and I recommend them highly to add to your speedometer reference works.
