Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Cocoa Mats

When did Ford start using the cocoa mat for the rear floor instead of a wool carpet? I understand that the 1909 and maybe the 1910's were originally equipped with a short pile wool carpet with snaps. If so, when did Ford switch to the cocoa mat? My 1910 didn't have original floorboards so there are no tell tale signs and I'd like to keep it as original as possible.

Wool it is! Thanks, Mark!

I'm going to get challenged on this, but I've never seen an original cocoa mat. I've seen a few T's where the owners say they are authentic, but I don't believe them.
