Introduced in 1952, the 37-hp. John Deere 60 was used for a variety of farm jobs, including hauling harvested Christmas trees.
The 37-hp. John Deere 60 offered a choice of gas, stove oil, or LP fueled engines, and an independent PTO powered by its own clutch. Also available in a Hi-Crop model for growers of sugarcane, flowers, etc., the tractor was produced until 1956.
This 2008 John Deere commemorative holiday ornament – the 13th ornament in this unique series – relives that holiday tradition and highlights the John Deere 60 Tractor.
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.
