Those pics do seem to look original and I can not say for sure it is not. A lot of older tractors had this type of ignition.

After viewing several manuals, I have found this one that shows the push button starter but has a key off/on switch. This was for the 53033,53037-53038 tractors (circa 1966, 8, 10, & 12 HP). So it is very possible what you have is correct.

Well I went to the local auto electric shop and they matched up a 2 position key switch that fits exactly in the hole where the toggle switch was. The switch was made by "Cole Hersee”. Probably not exactly like factory but its the right type and it looks good in there. Costed me 20 dollars. Its close enough to original for my liking. Also if I display this tractor publicly I can take the key out and no one in a mischievous mood can just start it up for some random reason.
Thanks all for your helpful replies.
