If the serial number is correct and it is a regular Cub, then yes it is a Circle Cub.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Strangely I attempted to add a picture in the initial post. Don't know what happened to it, but here's the Serial Number Plate.

I'm thinking that I may find the same on mine.

Just brought it home last night. It was "in the family". My sister-in-law's stepfather is really into Farmalls. His first was a 52 Cub with Touch Control, Woods belly mower, and snow plow. This one was his second. He bought it because it has a better engine than the 52. I've always liked the Cubs and just mentioned that I was thinking about getting one to mow a lot I own and he said he'd make me a deal I couldn't refuse. Took my son to see it about a month ago and he feel in love with it. So we brought it home. Now I just need to decide how much work I'm going to put into it. Should I just clean it up or should I restore it. Since the Circle Cub decals are missing I think it no longer has the original paint so repainting it won't harm anything. Some of the wires are in poor condition so I might put a new harness on it. It is missing the Amp meter so I'll have to get one for it. It has at least 1 bad rim. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!!!

Entirely up to you as to what you want to do with it. I can PM you a price of what we have in our recent '47 redo and it doesn't include any labor, rims or machine work fees. I think you will be surprised as to how far you want to go with it. We did buy 4 new tires for it and replaced every seal & gasket on the tractor except the radiator. I had every nut and bolt off of it except the radiator.

I would go all the way with it. It looks like it has a fairly new ($2,800 new) Woods mower on it. Selling that would pay for alot of the restoration. Don't cut any corners and it'll turn out nice!

I've been debating what to do with the mower and have considered selling it but then knowing me I'll end up cleaning it up too. ;-)

Just my opinion, but I think it would be easier to mow the lot if you didn't sell the mower.
