Cast Iron Seat Brings $1000 at Kansas Auction

An antique cast iron seat brought $1,000 at an auction held by
Raymond Pillard at Marysville, Kansas, on June 4.

The seat was round, containing the outlined words THE COMMON
SENSE CHAMPION, we read in the newsletter of the Cast Iron Seat
Association.

Dick Leill, of Lafayette, Ind., is editor of the newsletter,
which is indeed a very new publication. He reported that the
Pillard sale offered about 300 seats, 20 tractors, 7 or 8 gas
engines and other farm items. Family members helped on the
sale.

Second highest seat sold was a HAVANA, cracked, for $575. Lowest
price was $35.

John Friedly, president of the group and also author of a book
on seats, is now preparing another. The association now has about
400 members and is seeking more. Leill reports, ‘the English
club is on the move.’ If you want to tell Leill anything, or
ask questions, write to him at 4504 Sugar Maple Drive, Lafayette,
IN 47905.
