Default Jacobsen 4 Acre Mower

I just aquirred 2 Jacobsen 4 acre mowers and a parts mower without handles and a few other things.
Im trying to ID the years on them. I have a steel wheeled mower which i Identified the year, and a parts mower i have dont the same with. They both had tags with numbers.
NUMBER THREE, is a 4 acre with rubber tires and a caster wheel included in the rear. LOOKS LIKE...it had a (Sickle Bar) attatchment. I cannot seem to find a tag with serial number on it anywhere. Can anyone help me on this. Usually they are on the front under the motor. Pics included.
1. 3558 is a 1926 4 acre with steel wheels
2 2816 is a 1924 partial 4 acre with steel wheels
3. unknown number or year 4 acre with rubber tires and caster wheel.

Nice finds! I especially like #1. Looks like a super nice original machine.

If you look carefully at the edge of the engine base, either in the front or rear, Jacobsen often stamped in the numbers. Without the mower plate, it is difficult to date. Jacobsen did not keep engine numbers, only mower or implement #s. With the bolt on muffler, it will be a later version. The 4 acres with the castor wheel came with a sulky! Easier turning. I have not heard of a 4 acre with a sickle bar. Might be a different model. Nice finds! mower.
