What’s the Story Behind This McCormick-Deering Thresher?

the McCormick Deering thresher

I recently purchased a model of a McCormick-Deering thresher at an estate auction. The original Arcade Co. toys were made of cast iron. The model I purchased is made of galvanized steel. It has many red plastic pulleys and knobs mounted to the exterior. At the discharge end, there is a chaining I-link conveyor with wooden treads.

I believe this might be a salesman’s sample, as a cast iron model would be extremely heavy. The galvanized metal makes it easy to carry. Also, the detail in the pulley system is extensive. Does anyone have any information on this piece or recognize it?
