Monday Sept 6, Labor Day 2021. Near Gilman Wisconsin, north central part of the state. 1935 Caterpillar R5. 1920's Caterpillar 2 TON, 1930's International T-20, Later 1940's International TD-9. Tons of other old equipment, tractors, parts, tools, and lord knows what. 70 year accumulation, the buildings are full. Dishware too for the ladies. Thank you ACMOC.

UPDATE:
The R5 sold for $3400 to a speculator who hopes to flip it for a profit.
The 2 TON sold for $1800 to a local young guy who has an equipment repair shop. It is his first cat although his father has a couple dozen cats. Perhaps there is some hope for the younger generation after all.
The T-20 sold for $2050. It was bought by a collector for a museum so I presume it is getting restored.
The TD9 sold for $1900 (didn't run, bad valve). I didn't get to talk to the buyer so don't know what the future holds for it.
Unfortunately, the 2 TON parts carcass sold for $300 to a scraper. I will be trying to get the serial number tag off of it.
Scrapers also bought a number of the old McCormick Deering, International, and Farmall tractors.
Hit and miss engines sold well, Amish buyers help keep the prices up.
Magneto prices were soft.

All in all the auction went well. All the old iron that ran started on demand, a feat that I was nervous about. So one man's life long love affair with machines has come to an end. It started with a hit miss motor that was given to him by an uncle when he was 12. At 93, he was ready to close this chapter of his life. It is still a sobering thought for all of us who love machines. I have spent most days of the last couple months helping prepare for the auction. Time well spent with an uncle who helped and influenced me throughout my life.
