Just to get a little interest up...

9n with original Dearborn model 19-21 front loader on it--yes, both tractor and loader still work fine. Sure is hard to get on and off of compared to when I was a youngun and could just put my hands on the fenders and spring up into the seat from the ground, like mounting a horse's saddle Hopalong Cassidy style from the back.

Horse drawn single breaking plow--we always call this a Georgia Stock.

I never saw this used but have been told it is some kind of cream separator--currently another yard ornament in front of a flowerbed/dog bed.

Horse drawn sickle mower. I was thrown off this one several times when I was a kid--pulled behind an 8n trying to cut corn stalks.

May not qualify for "farm tool", but we have a prehistoric Singer sewing machine head as an ornament on our rock wall, and we have mint condition fur sewing machine from ~1930 (can't remember exactly) with a copy of the original sales reciept.

For other old stuff, an old Massey ground driven manure spreader, various horse drawn stuff, a JD model B wide front (1943 I think), and lots of old wrenches, some home made, etc
