President status based only upon age.  Those of you with side-tags have much more experience and I've had a good time learning about the subtle differences from their younger brothers.  I finally picked up a side tag 110 I've been haggling over for about 2 months now.  It's a long story that is a little too complicated so I'll spare the details.  Anyway, it's an early one.  Serial number 100286.  I'll try to post more pictures if I'm ever home in the daylight.  Came with a 30 tiller that's mounted as a cobbled up mess and will most likely get parted out.  It currently doesn't run but that shouldn't be a problem with a little elbow grease and time.

that is a new kind of lift for the tiller - have not seen one like that.

 

I have made me own rear lift kit for one of mine JDs

I was too busy trying not to go in the ditch.  The brown bomber is a little light in the rear end.

The hitch on the back of his tractor, is actually a round fender hitch welded to his hitch frame. My guess is that the previous owner bought the round fender tiller separate from the tractor, saw that it wouldn't hook up to the flat fender, and decided to fabricate his own design to make the unit work. Just my opinion, but it doesn't look like it will take much abuse before it decides to break off.

The tag location changed on all 1968 tractors somewhere around 100400 to 1004500 but there is nothing official.  I am not sure why the change was ever made.
