Re: FARMALL TRACTOR DECALS
Steve and Barb Hile
John Deere builds combines, planters and tillage equipment, etc. in the Illinois Quad Cities (home town). But John Deere's main tractor plant was in Waterloo, Iowa.
International Harvester built the Farmall tractors in Rock Island and its combines at East Moline, both plants sat literally on the borders of those towns with Moline, the home of Deere.
Go figure. My sister put in more than 40 years with Deere and Company and I had 37 with IH (and its successor companies.)

All I could offer is that John Deere has a plant just across the river from Davenport, IA which MIGHT have influenced Iowa farmers?
