An H makes an ideal first project for a tractor rookie. Simple mechanics, simple paint, common as rain, all parts available and cheap.
It only weighs about 4000lbs if you strip off all the wheel weights and drain any fluid out of the rear tires. With the rear wheels slid all the way in, it can be hauled on a common car hauler trailer with most any F150. That might be a consideration if you plan on taking it to shows.
The 450 is a lot more complex tractor. At the core its similar to the H, only bigger, but it has a bunch of extra stuff bolted on to make it into a modern tractor. If the TA needs replacing, that's not cheap. If the PTO is shot, that's REALLY not cheap.
The 450 is a ~6500lb tractor. You really should have a heavy-duty deckover trailer and an F250 size pickup or more to haul one.
If you're going to use one to farm, go for the 450. Just as a fun thing and a keepsake, something to paint up and make look nice, get the H.
