Hoping that someone can help me out as I don't understand.

A year ago I purchased a '68 110 . . . this machine had a only a sticker for the model and serial number and therefore was destroyed during my restoration.

Last night I purchased a '68 112 . . . this machine has a metal plate for the model and serial number that is rivited to the tower.

Why would JD have used two methods of identification.

I also have a '68 110 serial #102534M. My serial plate is a metal tag riveted to the tower on the outer right side of where battery goes.
I also have a '68 112 serial #103??? ( cannot remember off the top of my head ) with metal serial plate riveted on the tower above the parking brake handle.

Could it of been a thing where it depended on which factory built it?

All John Deere id tags, on the older models, are riveted on. If you have one that did not, it wasn't factory.

Early '68 machines are commonly called "side tag" machines where the serial tag is mounted on the right side of the tractor below the edge of the hood. These machines tend to command more money. As Tmo says... all older Deere LGTs use the same tag with metal rivets. The new tractors (like the 1992 318 that my Dad owns) use a sticker that is located in the same places as the metal tags. IIRC a 332 tag is on the right side of the tower down by the fender pan.

The decal did not start until the late 80's or early 90's.
