One more picture of the hood decals showing the "M-D FARMALL" decal. I found this while scraping off the decals today.

If you do the math for total production for ‘47 and figure it was for 8 months with 1355 per month, at the end of the third month July, the number would average out at 4067.
That puts yours right on the fence of receiving the new “Farmall cub” decals and possibly left over circle cub decals.
Anyone deep into auto restoration can tell you that decal placement was more often than not up to the assembly line worker than was an exact science. I doubt it was any different on the Farmall assembly line.

Look at the Cub database and you can almost figure it out.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

There is no evidence of any Circle Cubs after August of 1947. Serial # 4028 was produced sometime after mid August 1947. I believe the Circle Cubs ended around that time. The first confirmed non Circle Cub was at serial #4308 according to the database.
