Photo McCormick-Deering sickle bar sharpener

I just bought a McCormick-Deering sickle bar sharpener at an auction and wanted to restore it since it came with a new stone. I have three horse mowers so this will fit in perfectly after it is restored. I am trying to make it look like just when it came out of the factory and to do so I need the original paint color or color code. By the way it looks like the whole thing use to be red even the wood handle, correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for the help

Here are the ones I have in my display. International Red was the color and everything, including handle and all, was red. (Obviously I haven't painted mine )

Bob, I have a sharpener and I have a stand, but I do not have a gear on the sharpener. Could you count the teeth and maybe see if there is a part # on the gear? I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks,
Kevin

The gear connected to the chain has 38 teeth and the sprocket has 6 "teeth." I could not find a number on the pedal powered one, but found a number on the hand powered one. That number is P123. It has the beveled gear inside. It is the same gear on the hand and the pedal sharpener, but the pedal sharpener has a sprocket that holds the chain. I hope this is the gear that you are talking about.
Bob
