Default Help identify JD grill/nose.

Hello all. I picked up some jd parts today at a garage sale. I'm trying to figure out what tractors they may be for? I believe the 1st and 2nd pic shown might be from a 720/730 model? I have no idea in pic 3 and 4 what that nose is from? Asking for some JD knowledge that can be shared here with these. Thank you

If I counted correctly the one at the left has 11 pleats so would be for a 620/630.

Craig, yes 11. Appriciate the identification. The other grill might be from or for a 320/420 Dubuque as GAdavis stated. I never heard that term Dubuque, but I did some google search and couldn't find that grill color scheme. Could someone possibly tell me what year tractors would be fit to? Then the next thing would be I guess is find someone who needs them. I know someone spent some time restoring them! As I'm learning here,the 520 had how many pleats?

One on the right has to be a Dubuque tractor, I'd guess 420 if I had to guess, due to the Dzus fastener at the back, also the radiator neck hole is on the left side. Waterloo's were in the center, like the first one.
Only way to tell for sure what it fits is measure the width against a known one...
Nice find, somebody did put some work into them for sure...

Edit: Not a 420, the grille goes all the way across...I'm lookin'...

Edit again: 420-430 CRAWLER...REALLY nice find...

Dubuque Iowa was the factory where the 2 cylinder upright engine tractors were made and Waterloo Iowa was where the laying down 2 cylinder tractors were built.
