Default John Deere E Truck cart - how to tell if original?

How do you tell the difference between an original JD E truck cart and a reproduction?

If it is not rotted out and welded it is a reproduction!!

The wheels should have the part number casted on one of the spokes. (E44R) As for the front a rear axles I am not sure. As there are no numbers stamped or casted on them. Hope this helps.

The front axle pivot pin, or whatever you pin call the axle steers on, is hollow on an original. The reproductions are cast solid.

Here's a picture I lifted from the Aumann site. Note the hollow "pin" I mentioned and that the front bolster has a part number cast into it. You can also see the number cast into the wheel.

Is the "R" in the part number (E44R) left off of the repro cast wheels? Seems to me years ago I had heard that was a way to tell.

Reproductions generally have no numbers cast into them. I'm sure there are exceptions to the rule if somebody had one cast off of a buddy's cart.
