Plans have changed and im attending a different auction. Might be able to get some deals with everyone going north for this auction.

I see the current economic climate isn't affecting much at the sale.
A Rumely New Lightweight Oilpull Tractors catalog just sold for $325.......A Waterloo Boy Kerosene Burning Tractor Catalog sold for the $350.......
I was happy to see a Hart Parr lightweight catalog outsell the above two items....... .......at $400.

I'd LOVED to have a bought a HAPPY FARMER MATCH SAFE for Randy Reysen.......but $575 was a little steep for rme.......

Does anyone know if the sale is inside a building or outside? Also is the vehicle parking in a mud field or what? Thinking if driving a dually there, but it's pretty well useless in mud. Take the car instead and can always go back since I am less than 2 hours away. Thanks for any information!

The parking is mainly on the road as the field is solid mud. As for the Auction it will be inside.

Don't bother coming....there is nothing to see......

If you do decide to come, bring some good walking shoes....and be prepared to walk 1/2 mile to the auction.... I do believe that they will have he parking lot open tomorrow as they didn't want it messed up today in the rain. With the wind blowing tonight like it was, I think it should dry up...

Actually, it is an impressive building with many neat tractors... I will be back tomorrow...and will be doing my best as there is nothing in the wallet for the hand to bid on...So far, I have 496 photos and ran out of light outside as I was waitng for there to be fewer people in the photos...

It has been brought to my attention that the "Boys" are in the tavern now. What are chances of being at Parker's at 9AM

For those of you not at the sale, you can follow the bids on the link A Martinson provided above in post 46. According to proxibid the big Mogul sold for $275,000. The Rumely F sold for $110,000. The Hart Parr 30-60 sold for $140,000. The Mogul Type C sold for $140,000.

I am not at the sale but I would assume these numbers are correct. More final bids are being updated currently.

I am not at the sale due to distance and a rather thin wallet at the moment! Thanks for keeping us posted.

Following from home.... Might have the flu. Good price on the Case 20-40 I would think? Some things seem high, some don't.

BECOME?.......

Where have YOU been?....... .......

Actually, a lot of the more common stuff, and even less common stuff, was selling at some sociable prices which might be expected when a large quantity such as this is turned loose at once.
While not a tractor, I can't remember the last time I saw a 6 hp John Deere engine sell for $5000.

Both Allis Chalmers model E are 20-35

Serial number 16298 Lot # 85 Year 1928
Serial number 19036 lot # 71 Year 1929

Number stamped on gear shift quadrant. Also there is a manufacture month date and year on the engine head. Engine head year sometime don't always match to the tractor serial. Manufacture use spare head ready for production.
