An estate sale is occurring this weekend in Wisconsin where the husband was a known John Deere collector. Due to the circumstances surrounding the reason behind the sale, not much is known about the collection that will be available for sale. The estate service’s website does provide some pictures where a person can read plaques for the following tractors: John Deere 1951 R, 1947 G, 1946 Model D.

This is an estate sale and not an auction; so first come, first serve. Not much advertisement has been done here locally and collectors may be missing out on a very nice collection. The link to the estate service’s website can be found here
