Made in the USA

One of my favorite things about watching American Pickers on the History Channel is seeing all the cool antiques that were Made in the USA.  Whether it is a cast iron meat grinder or a vintage porcelain sign, I love when they dig up a sweet item.  Now, maybe it is a bit romantic to think working in a factory that made cast iron meat grinders was some sort of utopia.  It probably wasn't, but at least it was a job.  A job producing something useful that people needed.

Anyhow, I was struck recently by this John Deere 95 Combine.  Even the printed instructions on the combine were printed in the USA, check it out!:
