John Deere Limited Edition 2001 Pewter Christmas Ornament
This 2001 John Deere commemorative Holiday Ornament - the 6th ornament in this unique series - relives that Holiday tradition amd highlights the John Deere Model A Tractor and its replica toy.
Children could farm on the living room floor after scale-model John Deere toys debuted in 1946. The "A" was the first toy, and was based on the 16-hp tractor produced from 1934-1952. It pioneered adjustable wheel tread width, and a one piece transmission case that provided high under-axle crop clearance.
Each hand-painted pewter ornament is packed in a velour pouch stamped with the John Deere trademark and the year of issue.
These ornaments make ideal gifts for the antique tractor enthusiast, a popular item for collectors, and a great link to roots for children of all ages who have left their farm home. The ornaments are also nice heirlooms to pass on to future family generations. Early ornaments in this unique series have become rare collector's items, and are frequently sold or traded at collector's shows and on internet auction sites.
This ornament has been created in a one time production run that will limit availability and ensure their continued value. This is a Made in the USA collectible.
