Farmall M tractors have appreciated 38.1% in value since 1996

Call it "shopper's back."

It's an acute condition, afflicting mostly men. Onset comes suddenly, but predictably after 20 to 30 minutes of shopping at the mall. Incidences of shopper's back rise dramatically in the weeks leading up to the holidays.

I've suffered from a bad case of shopper's back for years. I don't know what it is about walking around a shopping mall that gets me. I mean, come on, I can stand around a long line of machinery for hours at a large farm auction on cold, blustery winter days and not have my back start barking. I can park my car and walk on two miles of asphalt to and from the ballgame and the back will be fine and dandy.

But shopping? Pass the Tylenol.

Well, I'm here to try and help folks.

Instead of wandering the halls of your regional shopping mall in the coming months looking for that unique gift for the farm equipment lover on your list, why not go to www.rustbook.com and, for just $19.95, you can purchase our definitive new guide to current values of all types of farm machinery 30 years old and older.

What's unique about this book?

How about the fact that it contains the auction sale price data I've compiled for the past five years, not just on tractors, but on older trucks, combines, plows, planters, drills, backhoes and any other type of older farm equipment you can think of.

In addition, The Rust Book contains serial number information, Nebraska Test results, plus tons of other great info. Like I said, your definitive guide to older farm equipment.

Take Farmall M tractors for example. Manufactured from 1939 to 1952, Farmall Ms have been appreciating in value over the last ten years. Here's the proof, based on the auction sale price data I've compiled.
