AUCTION FEVER

A couple of MMOGTA associates from the lower pay-grades were recently dispatched to observe and document a noteworthy auction within the scope of our travel budget. With hands firmly planted in their pockets, to avoid any accidental bidding, the lucky duo arrived at the site, full of anticipation. Time and effort well-spent, indeed. This likely was the largest collection of “Orchard” tractors and memorabilia either had seen in one setting. The machinery alone would have comprised a great show at any venue, and the estate upon which it took place was no less an attraction. What follows below is some random photographic evidence of the quality and uniqueness of this collection. We felt it was well worthy of the time invested to pass it along for others to enjoy. The photos below are only a small sampling of what was one of the premier collections in the country. We were grateful for the opportunity to see it in person.
