Great X23 photo, and yes it's not dated. But the reweigh date is clearly Oct 1933, and the repack date looks to be the same.  Given the required service intervals of the time, summer of 1934 would be very good guess.

Somebody who knows their 1930s automobiles better can probably ID the "victim" of this accident.

    Certainly a superb shot emphasizing the superstructure framing of the X23.

      Accident? I thought it was an attempt to develop inverse piggyback <g>.

According the info below the photo, the car is a Plymouth. And it appears to have a 1935 license plate.
