I looked at an H today, it had no serial number plate nor any holes where one would have been. On the right hand frame rail just behind the grill, was stamped FBH 558. According to tha serial number chart on this site that would be the 58th one built. Am I correct to assume this? Thanks.

I have a W4 serial number 527 and it has a serial plate I didn't take the time to think about the number and always told people I had the 26th one built until I stopped and thought about it :oops: :oops:

I've got #FBH 647. There is also no evidence that it ever had a serial number tag. Serial number is hand stamped on right frame rail near the magneto. Engine block also has matching serial number. Have read that some of the early 39's left the factory without tag, but no one seems to know why.

Chart says serial numbers start with 501. I thought 558 would be the 58th one built.

I quickly subtracted 501 from from 558. Failed to count 501 as one. Had a feeling I was thinking wrong and that was the reason I mentioned I could be wrong.

Some of the early ones didn't have a plate and were stamped on the frame rail. Could be wrong but wouldn't 558 be the 57 one officially built? Way parts are switched on tractors after all these years you may want check the whole tractor good if wanting a near original early H.

Jim's thinking (suspect) when I number I put a 1 on the first one and go up. Thus number 10 is the tenth one, 558th one is 558-500=58. Jim

Casting codes should tell the true story. That is what I go by.
