The Best of Farm Collector

Field Guide to Mystery Farm Tools, Vol. 2
We’ve all seen at least one in our lifetime. That rusty, worn-looking antique tool that we can’t quite figure out: What does it do? Why was it made? What is it even called? This new edition includes more than 160 tools that have been identified and includes a small paragraph explaining what the tool was used for! You’ll read how to identify tools yourself using patents, online collector resources, and books and publications for collectors.
Great Finds: Tales of Hunting Old Iron
This guide is filled with great stories and pictures of finds, rescues and rebuilds of collector tractors, engines, steamers and more. From a rare Allis-Chalmers 6-12 tractor cut out of a hedgerow in Texas to a Case steamer pulled from a Kansas river and a huge Stickney gas engine pulled from a watery grave in Idaho, Great Finds: Tales of Hunting Old Iron, shares two dozen stories of tractors and engines found - and recovered - despite incredible obstacles.
As a student of the past, Sam Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting edition.
Celebrate the rich heritage of International Harvester in this Special Collector's Edition. From Cyrus McCormick and William Deering to the iconic Farmall Regular and immortal Cub Cadet, this special issue explores the history and culture of IHC in its many varieties. IHC Heritage covers it all, including family stories, early prototypes, history, tractors, engines, reapers and much more.
