Believe late 30s or early 40s based on what uncle had but he went to a lot of swap meets and had vendor spots at Hershey for 20 years so no telling for sure. Very heavy and tired of tripping over .

I would say 39 and later. Same basic trans with that type levers were used from 39 until 50. Cannot see the side opposite the shift levers but there looks like there might be a plate at the end of the lever shafts. If so or if there is obvious mounting screw holes to mount a plate that would hold some switches it would narrow the range to 41-2. Transmissions are also different depending on engine. Cannot remember exact numbers but the input shaft at the splines is approx 1 1/8" or so on the large engine transmission and slightly under 1" for the smaller engines.

If you can get the casting numbers from either housing, you might be able to look them up in the parts book. Those often equate to the part number on transmissions or at least they do on later models.
