International Harvester stuff? On Green Tractor Talk? Yeah, I know. I can feel the cold stares and narrowing eyebrows from here.
I know there are at least a few other red tractor folks on here, and even then most of us can appreciate old tractors and memorabilia regardless of brand. I wouldn't say I've ever actively collected IH stuff, but have picked up a few neat things over the years. Most of what I'm posting today I bought together. Some of it is from dealers, other things appear to be from manufacturing.
Little mailbox and a coffee mug.
Closeup of the mug. I'm guessing this may have been from a manufacturing/ assembly plant as a quality control award, but I really have no idea.
Child's medium size straw hat.
Lighters. I really like these. The one on the left is a D'Lite brand, and is stamped "Made in West-Germany".The center one says "Mursam LTD- PGH, PA" but is also stamped "Japan". The one on the right is a Park Lighter, made very near me in Murfreesboro, TN.
Belt buckle, key chain, IH stamp and a patch that I'd guess is from a service tech's uniform.
Pocket knife. It says "Sample L-52", so perhaps it was a sales sample by a knifemaker to a dealership trying to sell them knives?
These two pins are very unique. The right one is a 40 year pin, but I don't know if it's IH's 40 year anniversary or perhaps a particular dealership.
A little clearer (though still not great) photo of the other pin. It's from the IH Global Challenge, 1963. Not sure what that was, but they made a pin for it.
That's all for now.
