I believe (won't swear to it) that the Dearborn Economy plow that we used in the mid to late 50's had (still has) the cover boards. For tall stubble we used some #9 wire about 10 feet long attached to the coulter mounting shaft. It drug in each furrow just in front of the moldboards. Problem was you could not back up unless you first pulled them out of the furrow and wrapped them out of the way. Also wrapped them to transportdown the road.
