Aumann Auctions, Inc. Continues to Exceed Expectations Nationwide

Aumann Auctions, Inc. a MarkNet Alliance Member, had the privilege to conduct the Barb & Ron Koogler John Deere Collection Auction. The Koogler’s had a pristine collection of literature, memorabilia, toys, pedal tractors and antique tractors that drew in a crowd of over 400 bidders from all over the world, as far away as Australia.

Aumann Auctions was able to achieve record shattering results for the seller by using their vast amount of resources, exposure through the MarkNet Alliance Network and the ability to bring in bids through Online Pre-Bidding, Onsite Bidders, Live Internet Bidding and Phone Bidders.

Ron & Barb’s immaculate collection included one of the rarest John Deere tractors in the world: the John Deere Experimental 101, the only one in private ownership. A new World Record was set when it sold for $240,000! It will now reside in Springfield, Missouri.

This wasn’t the only record set at the auction. The Koogler’s also owned a very rare, original, 1949 John Deere A Coffin Block Pedal Tractor, (1 of 8 known to exist). A definite crowd pleaser as the bids went back and forth across the field and sold for $70,000, another world record!

This auction was full of excitement but also numerous rarities and collectibles, including a very rare NOS John Deere Quality Farm Implement sign that sold for $42,000. To view more auction results and any future auctions, visit
