NOS? Cool!! That is one very miraculous find for sure! Was it in the original box when you found it?

What are your plans with it?

I unfortunately don't know too much about it, but I would imagine some other people that do will be chiming in here shortly. :cool:

That's pretty cool!

Are you going to run it (-assuming you haven't already) or keep it as-is?

Do you know what brand of mower it is? Reminds me a little of a LB body with the offset wheel.

There were a lot of similar ones made in that era. When my dad bought our old house in 1956, the sellers left behind a mower with a very similar deck, except there was a large nameplate on the front that said Red Bird. I have not been able to find any info on that brand, either. After the engine on that was accidentally ruined from hitting a small hidden stump, the deck and handles sat for a while until I came along as a child and started following my dad around with it when he mowed. My toy mower was not a little plastic thing. :D
