Help me ID this old Lawn Boy ??

Howdy all... I found this ancient Lawn Boy sitting under 30 years of detritus... dumped some gas in the carb and it fired right up, ran great with loads of power. So I then proceeded to overwork it (bad me, I know) and apparently sheared the flywheel key ... the sordid tale is over on my front page, here

https://www.mylawnmowerforum.com/for...lawn-goat.html

So despite the machine being mostly a wreck, the engine is too good not to fix it (and it's really useful for small spaces), and the flywheel key doesn't seem like too difficult? I'm not a mechanic, but I can usually get things apart and back together. But need to ID the little goat so I get the right part.

There's no model number on it anywhere (and very little paint, either) but there's a round aluminum tag I assume is a serial number -- the mower looks 1965ish, but when I looked up the number on the tag, it came up 1957. <scratching head>

Tag number:
7256
4883670

Thanks for any help IDing my little goat!

THANK YOU!!

Didn't realise the first number on the tag was the model number -- apparently didn't click with whatever else I looked up!

Will probably be spring before I get to it again, but I'm sure I'll be back here with more questions.
