Below that series: 251341R2 L I hope these are right, as I do have to wear bifocals, and the focal length of sight is at the wrong place. Maybe this will help.
The plot thickens! You have more detective work to do. Each major casting will have a casting code on it somewhere. If the year is important to you, you should check each one to learn the year the casting was made.
So far it seems you have a 1950 serial plate on a tractor with a 1951 engine and a 1958 to 1963 grille. None of these discrepancies will effect it's usefulness in any way.
