Default McCormick T20 TracTracTor S/N Question

I was lucky enough to sight an early T20 and thought I had read a thread on this sight that helped to explain the early serial numbers and production numbers, BUT I CAN'T seem to locate the thread. this tractor I believe is a very early one and has the serial number 549 only no prefix letters. any help will be appreciated. Norm

The first 50 serial numbered tractors (501 to 551) were actually Model 15s. There are a number of differences between these and the T-20s so some pictures would be helpful to determine whether it is a 15 or 20. There are at least 2 of these first 50 still in existence with both coming from the Heidrick auction several years ago. I had heard that one left the country so maybe this is that unit?

Thanks for the above info, it all helps, I seem to remember reading about the pre production numbers and the use of pre fix letters somewhere but that info eludes me at the present time. The photos do not show much detail
it is just the lack of any prefix letter that has me intrigued

That is actually a 10-20 trac-tractor, and an early one judging by the fenders.

And the gas tank is early, same as the wheel tractor.

The only number on this tractor is 549 it appears to be right around the time of the change from 15 to 20, It also arrived new into the country, not a later import.

Russ is correct, this is a 10-20 TracTracTor built in 1928. Amazingly enough I have serial number 548!
