Is this tractor still around or did it get sold to the public?

Yes. The fenders pictured are Euro spec ones. Belt line lights it's a European tractor

I’m thinking Euro only.  I would think in CAN it would have been a 5250.

So were all the 5000 series Maxxums built in Neuss?  Or were some built in Doncaster as well?  I’m curious because with the MX Maxxum (which was an evolution of the 5000) Rest Of World sales production was in Doncaster while North American sales production was in Racine WI.

Interesting how multinational the Maxxum was. Built in Germany, or England, or the US, with transmission housings that had a “Made in France” tag on them and rims coming from Denmark . . .

I want to find an old Neuss tractor someday. My great grandmother was born there. I read they made ag equipment all through the war. There was some political push to switch over to military equipment but the plant management convinced the National Socialists that they needed farm equipment just as much and never swapped over.

North America marketed 51/5200 series Maxxums were built at Doncaster, at least all the ones I remember anyway. 
Yes, the transmissions for the Maxxums were built at St. Dizier, France. IIRC, that was a former IH plant before the merger.
