The Dain sheller
The Dain sheller, made in Ottumwa, Iowa. John Deere bought out Dain and later discontinued the sheller line. "They're pretty rare now," says Darrel Heeren. He found this one, with an 1882 patent date, at an auction near his home. Enough original paint and trim survived that a friend was able to use it as a guide for a new decal, which she spent hours creating.
