This is an interesting mower but I do not believe that Allstate is a brand name unless it was a very small company in California.
I can say that your mower was built before 1963 as that is the year state names changed to a 2 letter abbreviation.

You could try contacting your local Sears Service Center and ask about parts for this mower (the tech may want to see it) as they have books (probably online now) that have names of almost every mechanical thing made.
You may get lucky and find information quickly.

That's about all that I have found on this mower but you could ask the experts on several of the lawnmower forums.
You will have to join the clubs and you may have to ask several as this appears to be an unknown brand.
Sometimes stores had a brand name of their own (such as Kenmore) and had items built and used their 'brand name' instead of the company that built the item.

The plate says ALLSTEEL. I don't think it's a company name.

I found another ALLSTEEL 20" FRONT THROW REEL MOWER
in auction:

You have an Allsteel mower made by McLane.

Didn't you notice the obvious resemblance of your mower to the McLane mowers?

Mclane Manufacturing Company has been around since the 1940s, and has consistently built one of the best reel mowers in history.
The plate on your mower says "7210 E. Rosecrans blvd. Paramount Calif."
Yes, McLane Manufacturing currently has address 6814 Foster Bridge Blvd. Bell Gardens, California
mclaneedgers.com/
But the address of the company has changed.
For example, the address was 7110 East Rosecrans Ave. Paramount, CA
usermanual.wiki/.../html
And the address, which is written on your mower "7210 East Rosecrans blvd. Paramount California" too. You can see this address of McLane Manufacturing in Nongovernment Organization Codes for for Military Standart Contact Administration Procedures (MILSCAP) from October 1974, page 713 (books.google) "52706 MCLANE MFG INC 7210 E ROSECRANS AVE PARAMOUNT CA 90723", in Popular Science from March 1985, page 46 "7210 E. Rosecrans Ave. Paramount Calif. 90723"

McLane doesn't always put their company name on lawn mower (in front plate). For example, they made Craftsman reel mowers, on the plate in front they wrote "Craftsman"
