Mower looks like an early Woods 42C-2,3, or 4 to me.

It's missing a thin sheet metal cover. http://www.tmtractor.com/new/cl/475fp.htm

last pic.
this is the SN plate, what's left of it...
sn-plate.jpg

It looks like the only numbers ever stamped were "950" and the "J"
looking at the numbers by year chart this would be a '55 then?
or is there another feature that would make it identifiable as newer than that?

Check the casting codes of major components. The format will be numbers for month and day and a letter for the year of casting. TM Tractor has a list on their website.

Yes. I didn't see anything in your pictures inconsistent with 1955.

That is definitely a early 1955. They did not punch the hood for the access holes to oil the generator in the earlier 55s. I would say that where you are seeing red is just the primer and that it is in its original yellow color. Nice score! Please preserve it the way it is. Very Nice! Jeff
