John Deere was an inventor and blacksmith born in 1804.  After founding a blacksmith shop, John ran into financial trouble and faced bankruptcy. He sold his struggling blacksmith shop to his father-in-law and then moved to Illinois to an area that did not yet have a blacksmith and where his services would be of use to the local population.

Long before the days of tractors, John Deere started by building cast-steel plows which proved to be a successful venture. His products were known for their quality workmanship and materials and John would not build or endorse anything that was not built to the highest standard. The slogan "Nothing Runs Like A Deer", as long been used in advertising and has been the company slogan for many years.

Today, John Deere builds a full range of farm equipment including tractors, ATV's, combines, tilling equipment, lawnmowers and many more items. Aroun the farm, John Deere tractors are still referred to as the top-of-the-line tractor and many farmers can only dream of owning a brand new John Deere tractor or combine.

From a collectible standpoint, Diecast John Deere tractors are perhaps the most popular brand to collect. From young children to seniors, the fascination with John Deere runs far and wide.
