A New Year’s Surprise
Have you ever been at a crossroads in your life and stripped of options because there was not enough money to do what was best for you? That is exactly what, a gentleman, who we will call Charles, was faced with. Charles was at the point in his life when he had to downsize not by choice but by necessity. He was faced with selling off his belongings to try and raise the much needed funds, but knew he did not poses anything of significant value. Charles contacted an Auction House he had heard about… Pot Of Gold Estate Auctions and asked the owner to come to his home and evaluate what items could be sold at auction.

Vintage Tractors ARE our American History
Who doesn’t love vintage tractors?!
They are so rich with the history of America – farming, industrialization, westward expansion, agricultural world trade commodity…you name it! It is understandable why people would want to own a piece of that history!
While it’s a little difficult to collect the full-size versions…where on earth would you put them?!…these miniatures are a GREAT alternative! Whether you love the 1:16 or the 1:32 scale, the attention to detail on the Ertl and Franklin Mint brand models, especially, are AMAZING! Model tractor collecting is an fun and contagious hobby, and with good reason. America’s Heartland, and the farming families across our nation are our backbone and our heritage.
