John Deere H Decal?

I enjoy receiving Farm Collector every month. Although I am primarily a “green man,” I thoroughly enjoy articles on the history of the early farming days and am always amazed at how practical and creative our farming ancestors were.

I would like to comment on the cover photo of the February 2009 issue. I am not a “correct policeman”; however, I am not aware that the John Deere H ever had an H decal like the one displayed in the picture. My guess is that you are also going to receive a number of letters or e-mail from the correct policemen regarding this.

Keep up the excellent job you are doing, especially articles detailing the history of equipment development and the pictures that show these working antiques.
