You need to get your Full Steam Ahead book out. Read pages 149 to 159. It tells the entire story of the development of the L. The back of the book shows all the production numbers by years. For your information the first and fourth digits minus 3 is the production year, and the balance of the number is the tractor production number. Yours is tractor #1852. Mine is #298. FYI mine is a C, and I read somewhere that the first 250 were L's and C production started at #250. It is very possible that 1929 model tractors were made in 1928. Much like Ford Mo CO used to start making the new year cars on Sept first of the previous year. My guess is that it is much earlier than that now to try to get the new models out before the other guys.
