John Deere Part Two

This is the second John Deere toy our UFO Team found in Area 51. While we feel fortunate to find sucha treasure, we are unfortunate in that we do not know very much about the history of the item. Maybe our readers would care to speculate?

John Deere green with no yellow highlights. No wheels. The front of the device appears to be used to harvest corn as it is pointed in a manner to go between corn rows. Going toward the rear of each side is a large channel or belt that dumps in a hopper-like area in the rear. There is another channel running from the rear to the front and is for unknown uses. There are holes in teh rear that appear to be for a wheel chassis or some sort of connection to another device.

Unique Marks:
Both left and right sides bear "John Deere" in yellow on each chute



- Numerous facts were gathered from the private Richard Family Estate collection. These facts span numerous sources of information and contain genealogical data, photos, and newspaper articles.
