To commemorate the bicentennial of the USA in 1976, many companies created special items. Bolens jumped on that bandwagon, too, with Bicentennial Decals for their garden tractors. Apparently these were available at your local Bolens dealer. The pics show my OEM set of decals as they would be applied to a Large Frame, the decals themselves, and the envelope they came in. One of these days when I finally restore my 1976-vintage HT20, I will install them on that tractor. Until then, they are safely stored away.

Thanks for sharing this. My 1973 GE E16 has decals like these installed by a dealer who also sold Bolens. I did not press him on source of decals except that GE was most probably not the source. Two pics of my "bi-centennial" are in registry. Again,thanks to LPBolens.
