Default Corn planters and early planter seats

This is Mike with PAMA - The Paulson Ag Museum of Argyle

We have a collection of 8 or more early cornplanters, and about 14 extra seeder seats.

I am looking forward to using a few of these seats in a mobile display that will tour Boone and Winnebago Counties this winter (Part of a farm bureau Ag in the classroom project) and then a bigger mobile display next summer and fall for some steam shows.

What do you all think of some of these planter seats?

Am I right to understand only the earliest corn planters were equipped with the little stool-like seats in front? Before check-row seeders became standard?
