This Synchromatic model 115 is from the ‘46/47 time-frame. Paper labels were introduced into Gretsch guitars (with pre-printed serial numbers) in 1949. This example predates that and has the serial number stamped inside (no label). The serial numbering started over again around ‘47 which is why you are confused on the vintage of your guitar.
