Of all the blades I have seen this is the first Tubeframe Blade I have seen with the old style husky man.

 

 

I doubt it was installed at the factory but with Bolens you just never know. Anyone else see something like this?

 

It is an early 60's Blade judging by the ID decal

Hey, I know that blade. One of our fellow members is selling that. It's right out back across the alleyway. I could store it for you Doc if you're interested in it.

 I have about 5 Bolens snow blades for the tractors and 2 for the walk behinds. Only three of the tractor blades are yellow and only one has an extra decal. This is the only blade with the extra decal.
