Well even those are not that easily found. The cast plates are prefered but will use the plastic plates. That dealer that I said has those 3 Blackhawk planters if I could get him a hundred or 2 hundred of the International steel plates for that kind of money would take all of them, especially extra small rounds that could be used for pop corn. Just took him a John Deere 3 bar steel wheel hay rake with the old style teeth and got $350 for it, his offer, will be on his lot for $500 and will sell, it was field ready after I got done with it. This rake is a 1936 model year. This year I have furnished him with at least 5 steel wheel hay rakes all of up in your area probably would have gone directly to scrap yard but this dealer will take everyone I can supply him. Nothing built after 1960 that they can use. Anyway while I was there they pulled in to shell his popcorn with 2 6 row Case-Ih combines. There is a lot of popcorn raised around there plus a lot of vegies, There is a big produce auction there. Back to the planters a lot are going to 30" rows and prefer the McCormick 449-449A planters as they are clutch lift and sell for around a thousand dollars. If I could find several They would be sold as soon as I got them. Am considering starting to modify the John Deere 490 planter last built in 1956 so they can use them. My age and health problems getting in the way tho. A lot of 2 row planters still in use. The Deere clutch lift planters only go to 36" rows so the popcorn harvestors cannot harvest if planted with the Deere planters. That is the 4 row models. Just this summer picked up a Deere 999 planter (2 row horse planter) for anouther dealer $200 for planter, $200 more for transportation and have to figure at least $300 more to get a planter that has sat for 30-40 years ready to go so when dealer gets it ready and he already had a buyer when he said get it that planter will sell for $700+ dollars and they take the old style bar type plate that is not made in the plastic plates. Know of a good 2 row Oliver setting in scrap yard that no one wants as cannot get plates for it. All this machinery has to be clutch lift as these thousands of farmers only farm with horses. The ones I deal with are mostly in eastern Indiana but a lot of them here in western Ohio as well. Average farm size will be about 40 acres.
