HI Bear, that number isn't showing up in my serial# lists at all. According to my book, Super MDs didn't show up until 1952, and the serial# prefix on the chassis tag should be SMD or SMDL (the L would mean it was built at the Louisville Kentucky plant) The Farmall works SMDs would start at serial#501, and the Louisville tractors at 500001. Plain (non-super) Ms only went to 298218. Any chance that the tag was mis-read or doctored??

OK, serial# makes it a '53 Farmall works tractor (Chicago). The J I think means it has an "Auburn" brand clutch. I'll have to check that a little further.
