That is a horse drawn corn planter. Sears sold all kinds of farm equipment under the David Bradley name.

I'm not that big inbto the bradley line. Lauber would be a better one to chime in here. Have you found any kind of a tag with a number on it? My guess on value would be between scrap price and 200.00. you've got one good lid and those are probably the most collectable. Its sad to say but I've seen some lids bring more without the rest of the scrap metal attached to it. Depends what area of the country your in. It may be worth more to the amish that still use this type of equipment.

Well i know alot about the db line, but its mostly limited to the history and the garden items. The lids off those planter go for $30 to $100 depending on the area your in. The planter its self looks to be mostly complete and i might take the time to restore it to its former glory. What you really need to do is go to smoke-stack, or yesterdays tractors and see what the larger scale guys have to say.


Note:: i wouldnt normally send someone to another group, but i dont think we can do him full justice here in a GT group.

I have no idea what year or model. This is the only one I've ever seen and have no info on it. It said George on it somewhere when I got it. It has been sitting in the back of one of my barns for several years so I guess it is barn fresh. LOL There is lots of dust on it but I didn't hose it off for the picture because it was so cold today.

Well its sad to see today that this planter is on Craigslist for $165. I quess that i for one am disappointed to be used only as a way to get a selling price, and not by a collector wanting to know more about restoring and preserving an item.

Jeff, it hurts like hell to see that, it really does, as soon as someone asks for the value price of a antique or vintage, i walk away with no intentions of every returning, or to save it from their hands, stuff like that planter infuriates me and i wish i had the means to buy it so it will be covered up and restored back to its originality, not passed around like a bad cold.
Im very sorry about that Jeff, it is just another Moneyed man.

Thats the main reason I didn't respond to the post. I also got a PM from that person wanting to know a value. I will look through my litterature, brochures, books, and online for hours to help a fellow collector that is seeking information. I've also been known to donate and ship a part to someone that needs it when I have an extra but lately there seems to be an abundance of "whats it worth" inquiries from non-collectors. I just have no time for that.

I agree with you guys on this as well.
I tend to stay away from the "whats it worth posts" and only offer a price if I know the person or they have been a good standing member for a while. As in most cases the person is only looking to see how much $$ they can make
