I'm searchin all over, and cannot seem to find a positive ID on what an oem wheel weight for an MM GT would look like?  Did they have unique weights, or something more generic?  Any pics would be great!

I've not seen Ford or Jake weights, so doubt pics of MM weights are out there!

Well...i think I found my answer. Mentiond an MM tractor I was looking at to a buddy in Nebraska today and he sent me this picture! Has them laying out back in the weeds. Says they fit a 12" rim perfect...like our Simplicity weights do.

Probably off of a BG, or Bronco. MM garden tractors used regular Jacobsen wheel weights , and weren't marked any different.

So MM had weights that fit a 12" rim, but didn't offer them to GT buyers?  What's a Jake weight look like then, if that is what was offered with the machines?

Jake weights have filled centers.
They look more like a hub cap than most weights.

Here's a picture of a early 60s Jacobsen Chief wheel weight. During the mid 60s they changed and got rid of the writing on them and the J so that they could be used on the other brands that Jacobsen made.
