Probably a MFG# 990501 or 990544 deck or similar.  Here's the IPL for the  Arbor Assemblies:


Compared to some blades I've seen, there's plenty of meat left on yours based on the pics you posted.

But if you want new blades, they are part #108298.  A newer number is 1656144. 

There are also other equivalents - sometimes the center hole is smaller.  You don't use the center hole to bolt them on, but on older decks, there was weld bead left and the larger hole cleared it.  If you get replacement blades with a smaller center hole, you may have to grind the arbor bottoms flat.

I was told by local dealer when I had my B10 with 42" deck that the blades were NLA. Same with the spindles. I found a NOS center spindle on EBay 2 years ago but my blades were so shot and I could not find any so I just sold the machine. Also the hydraulic lift parts I was told NLA. So after 28 years with the tractor I gave up and sold it. Now I have 2 tractors to do the work that one did so nicely LOL

Call Brenda at Sandy Lake Implement, one of our advertisers https://www.sandylakeimp.com/locations.She will send you the new blades. I got a couple of sets from my local small engine parts shop. They are aftermarket, and not as thick as Simplicity blades. I always keep a sharp set hanging around so that changing blades does not mean take one off, sharpen and replace
