Having sold the farm, I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction to sell the items listed. Thank you in advance for your support and consideration. Very best regards, Eleanor Marker

NOTE: Eleanor and her late husband Ed along with their family owned and operated Marker Implement in Caledonia from 1964-1993.

They lived here on the farm for over 65 years. Many items on this Auction came from Marker Implement and past generations. There is a nice selection of John Deere tractors and collectibles, farm primitives and unusual guns to be sold. The 48 year old JD 140 garden tractor looks like new and the JD 2010 tractor will make a nice addition to anyone’s collection. The lighted JD sign was purchased new in 1963 and was never hung, looks like new. Make plans to be on Burlingame Ave. just south of Byron Center at 4:00PM on Tuesday, May 8th for the start of this interesting Auction.

Terms: Cash or good check day of auction. Master Card or VISA with 5% service fee. (We subscribe to PAY-TEC. (A national check collection company)
