First, very doubtful you have a hybrid mutt -the NAA had a 134 CID OHV engine and the rest of the N's had a 120 CID Flat Head engine and they don't interchange. NAA 700 isn't a serial number. Where exactly are you seeing that? Simply saying "on the casting stamp" means nothing -what casting? Castings were not stamped -they'd be as cast raised or cast recessed characters and numbers. All NAA serial numbers were on the LH side as marked - see below. Shermans were aux dealer options, so don't look for any markings, there were none. We need to see more of the tractor -details of dash, engine, markings, trans shifter - basically the entire tractor. Do you know how to post pictures? If not, email them to me as attachments in jpg format and I can post them. More info on this LINK below.
The serial numbers on the first 22,238 NAA models were stamped on the left front
of the engine block just below the head as shown in the photo below.

Serial number location on later NAA models was on the left side of the transmission case just below the flat above the starter bulge as shown in the photo below.
