Looks like an American built in 1939, British built would be "EB" , hadn't known there were British built Allis.
The tariffs were set to protect UK production and to get the low tariff a certain amount of the tractor would require building in the UK.
often these tariffs were crucifying to ensure local jobs. Still some countries such as India have very high rates.
 
We have a 1943 B which has much wider back tyres than normal and mudguard extensions. I think they were originally imported through Southampton as AC had an assembly plant at Totton- I was reading an article on local Spitfire production during the early war years and Allis Totton were mentioned as parts suppliers. Ours has the American bowed front axle, but when Essendine opened post war, the UK models were given a squared off adjustable axle.

they were used a lot with mid mounted machines for row crop work

There you go, that's me on the seat. Notice the lever for lifting the beet hoes - no hydraulic assistance then.

Thats a late one with a sprung seat.
My granddad had an earlyish one with bench seat and hand brakes but I don't know if it was bow axle or not
I have one with bench seat and foot brakes and straight axle and a hoe much like that as well as a cultivator, non runner at the moment, spose to be my retirement project if I get there

One with a Perkins engine, later still. This was 1958, the previous photo must have been 53 or 54
