You look to have an F120 plow based on what I see in the photos. NGP (New General Purpose) type bottoms were available up through the 1960's as a special order type item although rarely seen on plows made in the 1960's.

That 8224 brace was used on a lot of bottoms and it won't narrow down your bottom specifically to less than a hand full. The guess is that you have 14" bottoms although the frame size may be 12" (hard to eyeball that) as it was a seldom seen optional size on the F110/ F120 plows.
Steve Rea who owns/ operates Ploworx.com is making new shares in 12, 14, and 16 inch sizes to fit most of the NGP series his parts are nice and he is very pleasant to deal with. Steve Smith from Ohio specializes in IHC & Oliver although he may happen to have what your plow would require...just have to check with him.

You will want to remove a plow share to confirm a part number as there is a small possibility that the bottoms on your plow may be of the "heavy-duty" variety meaning different plow shares versus the more common NGP series. The below share numbers will be mixed in with alphabetical prefixes such as BC BCA BH BHA among others but the number is what you need to know...
215 share = 12" NGP common
217 share = 14" NGP common
250 share = 14 NGP heavy duty (will not interchange with the 217 shares)

You may also want to look at some plow books written on the subject by David Wolfe (see website link) for additional information.
Best of luck to you on your quest and you never know... once you know the part numbers you need perhaps you'll get lucky in finding some at auction this year on a pallet for cheap. New shares will cost you well north of $100 each and used that are worthwhile perhaps between $50-$75 each. There are options for what you'll need but it's up to you to decide the value you're willing to put on having extra parts.

Disclaimer...
The above may be best taken with a grain of salt as it might simply be hog wash coming from someone is purportedly only a "part re-seller"... of course for the fun part of message boards you get the liberty of deciding for yourself what is good information among the alternative information.

Good information. I just ment by reseller that he might just as well go to Steve and the factory as him having to order thru you and then you having to still order from Steve. I have never delt with you or met you but I think you do good with other things and if you can find those shares laying around forgotten about someplace. One thing on the numbers that you did not mention is if the old shares are Star brand that most shares around here were, made for all makes, they had their own numbers so they are not the same as the factory numbers so you would need the old conversion charts for converting if from their numbers to Deere numbers no way to convert that I know except visual and try. I think Cressent forge might have had their own numbers but don't know. I have hammered sharping many a share with a forge and andville in my time. Some of the shares I just sold to Steve Smith last November had the star numbering on them. We need all the parts guys like you.
