That looks an old one Mll.

Very lucky to find any transport wheels with it!
It's a grain binder as noted by everyone else,and made earlier than mine, sometime after 1902 and Maybe no later than 1908.
(Definately before 1923!)
There is some confusion in my mind re. when they stopped trading as Deering, and started calling them McCormick-Deering. (The merger was 1902, but they kept their individual names for a while)
I found a Deering binding attachment in the bush recently, but this one is a bit more modern, as the one I found is pre-merger.
Seems Massey Harris used a lot of the Deering ideas, inc. the trip arrangement and the reel drive.
Twine can on front, like all the later ones with Deering binding attachments.
It looks do-upable!

I have a piece of metal from this McCormick deering on it and would like to know how to remove moss from sitting outside from metal and how to prep metal to save without damaging lettering . Piece is from early 1900"s binder. Thanks

Is it raised letters you want to preserve?
I don't think you will mean painted letters.
If raised letters, just a wire brush will clean the old rust off, then polish it up with some coarse wire wool if you want a better finish.

If it Is paint you want to preserve, then maybe a cutting or rubbing compound will remove the crusty moss with least chance of damaging the old finish.
Let us know how you get on.
