I have an old Deere seat that says "John Deere and company Moline, Ill." I know that Deere and company no longer has a plant in this city! Does anyone out there have any idea of how rare this seat is and maybe how much it may be worth?

Does it say "1847" on it?

I have never noticed that number but I will look at it this weekend(it's at my cabin) and get back to you. By the way, I've been corrected about the Moline thing! Where might this number be?

The number is in the center of the seat, right where you would sit.

If it has that number on it, it's a foreign-made item that is being peddled all over the place as an old is not old.

Good luck,

It isn't one of the modern chinese "reproductions", is it?

And who told you Deere no longer had a Factory in Moline? (Or doesn't East Moline count???)
Deere Harvester Works...

No, it is not a chinese reproduction. I'm sure it's genuine and pretty old. I found it in 1974 while cleaning out an old barn in central Calif. Apparently I was mis-informed about the Moline thing!
