Our History

Established in 1974, SpecCast Collectibles in Rockford, IL was founded by Ernie Jackson. We had our start producing custom buckles for farm equipment companies as well as specialty buckles and other premium products for customers nationwide. In July of 1986, the company was sold to Dave and Patti Bell. Ken, Dave’s brother, later moved to Rockford to run the business.

Shifting Gears to Replicas

The next year, Dave left his position with renowned die-cast replica manufacturer Ertil Company and moved the SpecCast to Dyersville, IA. It was here where the company began manufacturing pewter replica tractors in addition to its other products. We saw excellent growth during this period and within two years had over 100 employees.

Expanding Our Selection of Miniatures

In 1990, we began selling 1:25 scale replicas of cars, trucks, and airplanes to expand our custom imprint lines. Additionally, we started using spin casting to produce 1:16 scale tractors. Two years later, we created our first highly detailed die-cast tractor, which was wildly successful. Sales grew quickly, and as a result, we expanded our model selection with licenses from leading farm equipment companies.

Where We Are Today

Today SpecCast Collectibles makes die-cast replicas for agricultural equipment companies. In addition to our miniatures, we also produce custom products for retail and promotional use. We strive to expand our product lines continually to satisfy our growing customer base and create lasting relationships with new companies.
