I'd say if the tag was riveted on, someone did it or it was on some aftermarket part/company. Again, Ford/Dearborn Motors never made a 4-hole drawbar similar to the 11-holer. There were some later Ford drawbars that had only a few holes. Back in 1975 I began working at company where I cut my teeth on NC Machining. We also machined some solid drawbars for Ford Tractor. They were service parts and got shipped to England from us. As solid steel castings, we simply drilled and reamed a set of holes in them and that was it. I recall two different drawbars; one long rectangular and one shorter with a hook on one end. There weren't very many holes in them. I recently saw one on ebay. Also, Dearborn Motors used the familiar diamond logo with their name inside. Was this tag like that? It's also possible it was put on by someone stealing a tag from another implement.
