Dean,
Sorry. Highest number in this book is 11890, sold in early 1937.
On the last page is has numbers 11900 and 11901 sold in late 1936 which are x'ed out and below it says "In new book." All three are H.K.s.

Photo Re: Huber Tractor Serial Numbers

I have a 30-60 Huber front name plate. I purchased it from an elderly farmer that purchased it at a farm auction in the late 1960s or early 1970s. The farm he purchased it at was where the Huber was junked decades earlier. He did not remember the farm name or exactly the location. It was in the Hastings MN area or near by town. There cannot be too many 30-60 Hubers sold in the Hastings MN area. Is it possible this tractor can be tracked down? Oh, the farmer I purchased it from he used as a step in the granary.

Kevin,
A quick look shows nothing at Hastings. There were several 30-60s sold west of Minneapolis. I'll keep looking.

Serial number is 573.

By the way, were any of the big Hubers listed as being sent overseas?

There are a couple shipped to Havana. I don't see anything overseas after a quick look. The company George W. Sillcox & Sons of New York, NY comes up quite a bit in the late 30s. Could it be an exporter?

Serial #573 is listed a a Model 35-70, sold to CW & EH Merydith of Eldorado, Kansas on April 5, 1917.

This is interesting:

After reading the link in the previous post involving the Stanley automobile steam explosion, I got curious and searched a little more to find out if CW Merydith's son survived. I came across a short clip from "The Earth Mover" magazine Nov 1919.
Not only did The Merydith family lose their home, their belongings and most likely the church they attended, they also lost their son...
