Note: After we sold Ray’s massive John Deere & Cast Iron collection over 10-years ago, he couldn’t stand to have his toy shelves bare, so he started over, collecting nice original 1950’s & 60’s pressed steel trucks. Many pieces with the original boxes and only a handful of repaints in the collection. Abbreviations: (NIB=New In Box or with box, COE=Cab Over Engine, RP=Repaint, SHD=State Hiway Dept.)
