I have just acquired a 12" Chain Automaton which lacks a throw plate. My pictures of the Ransomes Sims and Head Gear Automaton (Alec's?) displayed at MKM in 2013 show the throw plate with a small plaque on it bearing the name and width of the mower, Mine is a Ransomes, Sims and Jefferies; does anyone know if the throw plate for this slightly later machine would have had the additional plaque or not?
