I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether or not the first serial number produced for 1941 Farmall M....SN 25371 would be worth more than other SNs produced that year simply because it was the first one made for that year? THANK YOU!

There are certain collectors here that go crazy to get oddball stuff like a first one of a certain year production tractor, like your example, or last one of a certain year,etc. They think it will be more valuable when they try to sell it. I dont recall now what it was, but a local guy had a first of the year Farmall, or he claimed it was. (I never checked.) "Never been touched, bought from original owner, yada, yada yada." He died, tractor set there for some 15 years, and got sold for scrap. I made an offer on it once, was still more than I was willing to pay, so the owners wife sold it for LESS than I offered.

I have a Farmall A Cultivation, that was purchased in 1947. But the serial number FAA 182963 is the last serial number listed for a 1946. I don't think it's any more valuable, but it is unique to me.

Most letter series Farmalls from that era began with 501. Basically if you have a three digit serial number, you have an early one.

Not to my knowledge, The tractor would need to be a transition "first" from H to SH, or other reason. The parts were made ahead of production/assembly. Check casting codes. Some individual might think it was cool, and pay more! Jim

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
