    Single row planter

    So I picked this up yesterday, it's a little single row planter of some sort. Looks mostly complete, some small rust holes in the bottom of the box but nothing major. Can anyone ID the model or an approximate age?

    Interesting closing wheel, usually see larger wheels on the drawn planters. Wonder if that planter had handles and was a hand pushed unit?

    Could be. The latest patent date on the inside of the lid is 1901.

    A lot of the one row horse drawn planters was chain driven off the closing wheel and nothing up front except a plow point or two. The two bolts up front looks like it's a row unit off a two row planter though.

    Found some history on the Deere Mansur company. Together started making planters in the 1870's and at some point the #9 planter became their bread and butter. Just based on what I read they were mainly building corn planters but what you have looks nothing like the picture I saw of corn planters. Apparently they started with wood boxes, then cast, then tin. Just guessing here but I think your planter will date past 1906 but I don't think it's a corn planter. I thought maybe it was an attachment to a planter for fertilizer application but that doesn't appear to be right either. Whatever it is you picked up, it's pretty cool. Is there a seed plate inside the bin? Maybe figuring out what size seed it was planting will yield a model and date for it.

    I can remember selling parts for 919 and 999 planters, but this is older than they are. I'll be interested to see what you find out.
