It was a long time friend of mine who owned it. He came across the need for some money and I became the new owner. He purchased it from a man up in Minnesota. On the 2cyl research, it stated Branch: Minneapolis, Minnesota Destination: Deere & Webber. Serial# 635819 ship date May 20, 1949. I haven"t really looked for any signs of ownership tags as I just figured it was a run of the mill AW and I was glad to own it. Sitting inside all winter I sat down and reviewed all of my documentations on all my tractors and this just popped out at me. Thanks for the insight.

If anything, its a good story. It very well could have been used for demo purposes, or even just for moving stuff around the warehouse.

We have a 1939 BN, serial number 60006, which makes it the first Styled BN produced. It was built June 14th of 1938 and then went to the Sales Dept until August, when it was shipped to the Portland Branch. From what we have figured out, it was most likely used for photographs for sales brochures and manuals. There is a pic that has been used in several books from mid 38 of a BN on full steel, most like likely the same machine.

Mind saying what the build date was? If just a day or two before the ship date, it may indicate that the tractor was intentionally ordered for whatever it's intended purpose was as opposed to being pulled from a long standing inventory at the factory. May not really matter much, just curious. The more blanks that get filled in, the more likely that some conclusion can be drawn. Maybe you could put in a request with T-C and see if they would check the records at Archives (time permitting) to see if there was any other info out of the ordinary on the tractor.
To bad more records from the branches aren't available.

I was wondering if you just got your archive back from Two cylinder. I am waiting for mine. Thanks Dwight
