Wow, what an auction.
I’m talking about the June 18, 2011 estate sale in Steen, MN (southwest Minnesota) for Bill DeYager by Polk Auction Company. Bill was known as having one of the most extensive collections of Deere tractors. He sold his prize two cylinder Deere tractors at auction back in August 2009.
This June 18, 2011 auction featured Bill’s amazing line of “Next Generation” Deere tractors, so 10 and 20 Series models. Check out the YouTube video I made highlighting the tractors on this auction, including a 1971 JD 2520 “high crop” sold for $74,750 and also a new record high auction sale price of $50,000 on very rare JD 4020.
