The opener doesn't look familiar to me. In eastern North America single disk drills were made in that time period. In fact an old Eastern Grain Drill my uncle owned looked similar to this one except for the opener. Might be a dry land opener?

I think there is a part missing. In your photo that looks like just the down spout. There should be a double disk opener attached to it. At least that is how most of the vintage IH drills that I knew of were set up. There is an old one on my brother's farm but I would bet it has double disk openers. There are pictures of it here on the forum but I have no idea how to find them.

Eastern Grain Drill. IH didn't assign a number to it. Eastern drills had single disk openers back in the 1940's. This drill evolved into the M and MF series in the 1950's. Then they became the 10, 510, 5100 and finally the 5300 drill. Drills used out west often had double disk openers. Double disk drills started to sell well in the east by about 1970. In fact there were a few single disk 5100's sold as late as 1990. I had a 21 x 7 5100 back in the 1980's with double disk openers and press wheels. They were known as "Soybean Special" drills.

I've seen a few "Soybean specials" around here and always wondered what made them special. We had a steel wheeled drill like W400's up until early 1970's when Dad retired. Can't remember if it had double or single disc. I think it was an 8".

W400

We used to have a drill like you have pictured----IH single disk. I remember buying a hand full of parts for it back in the early 70's-------maybe to spot plant wheat or rice.

Never used it-----ended up let my son haul it off for scrap while he was in college.

Give me a few days----sorta think I may have several "boots" laying around in my "non-sorted" parts department.

You may have to jog my memory------not runnin very fast nowadays.

Hi Guys Still looking for help on sourcing furrow openers for this drill research leans towards this being a 1920's or earlier horse drawn drill only thing that puts me of this idea is the steel wheels all photos i have seen of 20's machines have timber spoked wheels.

Anyway any help greatly appreciated.
