So I was able to finally make my way up into the garage attic this past Saturday, and came a cross a big box. Couldn't see much in the attic due to poor lighting, so I brought the box down and made my way to the picinic table. To my surprise, this is what I found:

Some new old stock John Deere hubcaps! I knew I had some, but I didn't realize I had this many. Boy will my Dad be jealous!

At the rate you're going, you'll be able to hide your own Easter eggs next year.

Maybe you should do inventory. And a map. Take pictures at least.

Troy, those could be part of your retirement plan if the prices keep going up on older GTs. That's probably the largest stash of those in existence!

Those two brown ones are Elfman's first hub caps. He made those in the second grade.

After my first post I ran out and looked in the rafters of my shed. Yup, lumber.

Troy, how do you forget you have those kind of treasures?!?!

 

You shouldn't have posted that.  How many offers for a set have you received today?

It's funny you say that Bill, because that is what my Mom gave me as a nickname. I used to watch that show all the time when I was a kid.

What can I say Ben, other than it's getting harder and harder to keep track of this stuff. I was actually up there to try and find the 110 service manuals that I know I have, but just can't seem to find. I also found two more sets of the narrow front rims for the early round fenders too. Again, didn't realize I had them, so they were another surprise as well. I have been looking for another set for quite awhile, so now I guess I won't have to anymore.  :thumbs:

Those two brown ones are Elfman's first hub caps. He made those in the second grade.

 

Actually, I remember buying them a few years ago. Turns out, when I unwrapped them I found the old John Deere part number wrote on masking tape on the back side, and figured out that they fit the smaller diameter of the front rims on a 60/70/100 lawn tractor, as well as the wider front rims on any round fender or flat fender. I don't think I realized at the time when I bought them, that they were actually John Deere hubcaps, or knew just what they fit. The price was right, so I got them.

 

It appears that these hubcaps are 12", 8", 6" and the brown papered ones are 5". I still have hubcaps mounted on some of the tractors and dump carts yet that aren't shown above.

Boy Troy, what a great find you made in your garage. Didn't you just move all that stuff a couple years ago?
