OK, I found the part in question, auction ended, some unknowing poor soul bought it, so here are the pictures to convince anyone who still thinks this a 'real' FORD/Dearborn item. I said it below and will say it agin. FORD/DEARBORN never made a 4-Hole drawbar like the 9N-5182 type AND never put any tag on it. This is definetly a ho-made item. Note the way the tags are put on. Does that look professional to you? Hardly. The biggest tell? The RH tag is a Dearborn ID Tag for sure, but look closely at the Model Number box. It has a '14' prefix. The number '14' was the prefix code Dearborn & Ford used to ID MOWERS!!!! Also, note the ring welded on. WTF??? Ever see a Ford drawbar with that before? Hardly. Someone went thru a lot of work to make this and by the patina on it, was done a long time ago. Maybe the buyer knows all this and just wanted something unique to hang on his barn/shop wall. Who really knows but the truth is it is a definite fake.
