As I have said I am not a fan of repro plates, to me it's like forging a birth certificate.... :wink: BUT if you need one, Mrs. Deiner's plates are the only way to go, and this thread is proof!!

If you are making up a number, yep I agree wholeheartedly, and will go even farther and say that anyone caught doing so should be slathered in well aged final drive "lubricant".

If you are reproducing the same number though and the tag looks better, why is it any different than a hood, a tire, or a new paint job? If you replace those do you then have a forgery Cub? :D :lol:

I understand what Al "Super A" is saying. What if I took a 47 cub and put on a tag saying its # 502 (the 2nd made cub) and claim to have found it in Mexico (where IH actually sent the first 5 made besides #501) or put the right # on my 1950 cub and Super A and painted em both white.... If they made you ONLY use the original # then it would be fine BUT (and not saying Mrs. Deiner's is doing this!!!) BUT some people can and would do it JUST to make a $$$... I personally USE them so I could care less what my tag looks like or what # it is, other than the fact to use as reference for parts and such. But some would use it to make a silk purse of a sow's ear. But IMHO the tags should be EXPENSIVE, and HARD to get WITH much DOCUMENTATION AND PROOF if the old tag was destroyed with even possibly an asterisk after the # on ANY non confirmed #'s... But that is also why I'd NEVER buy one just because of it being a rare model etc... (like the 1979 long-stripe)(I want a long-stripe but NOT because of how few 79's there were or even how all the years of long-stripes were less than the total # of demos made in 1950. I want a long-stripe because they had the 15HP C-60's and were 12v and because of being 32 years newer than some cubs) BUT I'm also the type that would rather buy another 50's model rather than a 70's if it means the 70's would cost me an extra $1000 to get... I'd probably will get BLASTED for saying this BUT to me I personally get upset by some of my friends who buy old IH equipment and fix em up ONLY to put in a shed to be looked at BUT never to be used... While I would actually USE it for what IH originally designed em to be USED FOR, Small farms and a cheaper, better made equipment/tractors than the GREEN things they sell today.

I third or fourth Mrs. Deiner is the way to go. I had her make one for a project I had. She sent it back to me in a little candy box. Unfortunately the candy was missing but it had my original and an exact duplicate carefully wrapped inside.
