Is This Grain Grinder a Letz?

Grain grinder

Recently I acquired the grain grinder shown in these photos. It is similar to a Letz and is green in color. It is missing some important pieces. I really need help identifying it. I’m new to the corn grinder world. I can find no identifying marks. I found four sets of numbers cast into various parts: X 33, X 37, N 57 and MN 43. The top of the hopper measures 18 inches by 18 inches and it is 18 inches deep and tapers to 14-1/2 inches wide at the bottom. Overall height is 51-1/2 inches, base width measures 30-1/4 inches and overall length is 51-1/2 inches. If I can identify the piece, then I can begin working on finding some parts; I’d really like to use it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
