Ok I stand corrected, I went back to the book and it says...
"The trade name decal should be McCormick-Deering for pre-1945 tractors.
Sometime in 1946, the factory switched to IH McCormick-Deering decals which were used until the end of production of these tractors."


So though I haven't seen an "A" with those decals I would assume it would look exactly like those that which came on the very first cub built #501.
Ok I may go that route as it would set it apart without being incorrect for the year.
Nice catch Jim.
Mike.

I've never considered selling my copy of that book, but as they say, everything has a price. I've also got the 100 series originality book and am still hoping Guy will compose a 460-560 book someday.
