    Picture of correct 1929 Vinnumber

    Does anyone have a picture of a correct looking Vinnr. for a 1929 JD? I can buy a JD engine but have my doubts over the Vinnumber. Thanks.

    Greetings from Holland.

    Find a post by Chris Haynes. Go to the addy in his sig. Go to "case numbers." His 1929JD will do. 29 is a rare bird.

    Look for the case numbers file.

    Curious why 1929 is a "rare bird" when it comes to VINs?

    I think if you check published production numbers, Buzz: few stamped "JD" were built. Other model variations, concentration on the new Flathead 45s, other things (October Crash affected the '30s)

    I've had 3 sets of 29 JD cases all of them over 13K vin numbers, and I guess thats because there were j and f models too in that number sequence.
