Key points to look for are transaxle, brakes (discs v/s drums), pedals (single v/s dual) and serial tag location (early 1968 were located on the side by the hydro control).
From the thread so far I would guess it to be a 1968 model.

The 140 had single brake/clutch on the left side for serial numbers 10,000 and below. Individual brakes were added at serial number 10,001. At serial number 30,001 drum brakes replaced the disc brakes and the rear axle diameter increased. Also at this serial number break, the hydro unit was changed to a pinion and ring gear design instead of the bull gears used on the older models. As been noted there is NO H2, only H1s and H3s.
As been noted the 120 had the one brake pedal on the left and had the new style transmission using the pinion and ring gear design. Also drum brakes were used on the 120.
Based on the info we have, you have a 1968 140H1 frame.

Take a look at this thread for a 1968 H3 - noticed it has the notch.
