RE:Family tractors remembered - gone but not forgoten
John,

Yes we don't hear the "deadstock" phrase used much today by auctioneers, but it certainly was well used in advertising of farm sales up to the 1950's, I have lots of old farm sales catalogues here which use the "deadstock" description for anything other than livestock sold at a farm sale, be it produce, crop or machinery.

I was looking through some literature last night and found this M-H 12 tine cultivator with or without seed box attachment in an 1895 British M-H catalogue, so presume this was the type of cultivator listed in your families sale catalogue.

Malcolm.
