There are a significant amount of John Deere tractors and memorabilia that are kept as collectibles, as the agricultural giant that has been around since 1837 has had a large following for many years, according to Auction Bytes.
Along with an abundance of products that range from postcards to baseball cards, John Deere tractors can also be categorized as collector's items, despite their practical use.
According to the news source, there are three categories for John Deere machines. The first is full-size models, of which antique and vintage tractors are sought after by both collectors and avid agricultural enthusiasts.
Two-cylinder models that were manufactured from 1914 to 1960 are especially popular, and the toy machines that were initially made for children have also become a wanted item at many auctions and shows, Auction Bytes reported.
The models that were made during the 1914 to 1960 period were manufactured at the Waterloo, Iowa plant. This was initially purchased in 1918 after John Deere converted the former gas engine factory into its own facility.
