Rare early 1900s John Deere Tractor advertising pocket watch fob

Rare early 1900s John Deere Tractor advertising pocket watch fob
SOLD

This is a very hard to find John Deere advertising pocket watch fob from the very early 1900s. Measures 1.5″ wide and made of solid copper with a celluloid image of a John Deere tractor. It reads “John Deere Plow Company – Bastian Brothers Co. Rochester, NY “. Looks like the original owner etched his initials “RF” on the back. Celluloid has a few cracks and the fob has not been cleaned at all. I left it exactly how I found it, still with some built of dirt. Some people like to keep it exactly as found so I will leave it to the new owner to decide how much they want to clean it.

This is not an easy one to find in any condition.
