I have access to a MM Model D corn sheller. it has been sitting in the same spot for many, many years. It appears to be all there as there are two elevator sections that are laying beside it. It will need lots of work but nothing I can't handle. Is there any value to these once they are in working order other than historic value. How rare are they? Books available?

Most common sheller around here, perhaps 1/2 the farms owned one back in the day.

It sounds like it would be valuable for a parts machine, the bevel gears and such.

We used to shell with my uncle, he owned the sheller, then in the 1970's got our own for $900, was in good ready to use shape.

Bought one in the last decade, sounds like yours, for $75 for a parts machine. Don't think I've plled a part off it yet, but the last 2 years corn dried down so increadable fast, I didn't get but a couple wagons of ear corn made.

Scrap iron prices have gone up, so might be worth $100 in the shape it's in, not sure what a reconditioned one would be worth any more, see them sell for scrap all the time sadly...

White kept right on making those right up in to the 70s with the White name on them.

Did they make the smaller D, or were they only making the 1210 bigger model by the time it got to be called White? I've seen a few of the 1210's (like an E), hadn't seen an equivelent to a D.

Hard to keep up shoveling on a D, wouldn't want to try with a E/1200/1210!!!! :)

I don't know where you're located but you might consider putting an add in an Amish area newspaper like Lancaster Farming, in Lancaster Pa. or other Amish areas. I would imagine they still use them and I would sure rather sell it to someone who could use it than sell it to a scrapper. If it's a good one and an Amishman wants it, he will send a truck to pick it up and haul it home. I would sure try this before sending it off to the junk to be scrapped.

MM made two sizes of shellers...the D and the E. The
D was the smaller of the two. Around here in central
IL, they were not as popular but still quite common.
When production of the D ended, MM kept building the
E, then the 1200, and 1210. White built the 1210 in
MM yellow, White Red, and Oliver green. Sheller
production ended in the late 70"s.
Parts can be scarce. Amish use mostly the larger MM
shellers or the JD 6.
