DBs has been collected and shown since the 70's, like a lot of things they were over looked by loudmouth guys making a big fuss over the pre-war tractors or the ''name brand'' tractors or my most hated, popular collecting, in other words collecting a certain thing because everyone else near you is collecting it.
It is only in the past 20 years or so DBs has really begin to gain popularity and collectors begin to figure out all the details, now it can be googled and found easily.
There are ''nitch'' tractors and engine that still to this day is hidden, private collectors like what they like, not what you or Joe Blow like. 9 time out of 10 you have a few quiet collectors near you and mabey a DB collector too.
I consitered myself one of the quiet collector, still do.
