An International Hay Baler?

Dwight Brown found this hay baler in a fence row in northeastern Arkansas, but knows very little about it. Can you help him?

I rescued this hay baler (at left) from a fence row recently in northeastern Arkansas. I wish to acquire some history and literature so I can restore it. Someone suggested it might be an International. The only markings I found were numbers stamped in the gears and flywheel. Any help would be appreciated.

I’ve subscribed to Farm Collector for a number of years and really enjoy the magazine and all of the articles.
