Looks like a good #8 Little Genius plow. Moldboards do not look too worn and have extensions. A couple other parts seem to have been added for whatever reason and some pieces are bent...some people were rough with equipment years ago. Take out the 3 bolts on the rear wheel and turn the wheel around so it is mounted correctly. The rear landside needs to be "built up" on the tail end or find a better one.
Suggest you take the lifting hub apart, clean out the rock-hard grease, and add a little oil or grease to the spring and you will have a working plow.
A plow like that around here (WI) will go $200 or more at auction.
Paint scheme: IH Blue (NAPA 53 3736A is one version) on axles, hubs, springs, backside of moldboards and all lifting parts. IH White #935 is closest today for the wheels, IH #2150 for rest of frame and parts, black on coulter arms and hitch. You can paint it and still plow with it as not many parts will lose paint by plowing.
Then go out to a sandy field (no rocks!)field, experiment with the levers for setting and leveling the plow, and keep plowing until those moldboards shine! Or sell it to me!!

If you ever tried backing a # 8 plow up, I think that mite be what that contraption on rear of the main frame was. Drop down to hold tail wheel straight?????

For backing a #8 at shows I snap a Visegrips on the curved rod and it goes straight back.
