Rocky Mountain Mystery Photo 1-27-14

Do you know what this is?

Lorraine Taylor of Hesperus, Colo., is wondering if any of our readers know anything about this mystery object.

It is 16-inches long. The small heart in the middle slides up and down opening and closing the end loops. It’s all twisted wire, a little heavier than baling wire.

If you think you know what this is, then send your answer to the Fence Post Mystery Photo Contest. Please include your address and phone number.

If your guess agrees with our experts’ opinions, then we’ll toss all the correct answers in a hat and draw a winner. We’ll reveal the answer in next month’s Mystery Photo Contest. Entries can be mailed or faxed to (970) 352-7164.

The deadline for this month’s Mystery Photo Contest is Friday, January 17, 2013, so feel free to send in your answers and take a shot at winning $10 from the Fence Post.

We have a winner!

We received one entry for last month’s mystery photo.

Ronald Tinkum of Granby, Colo., thinks the object is an old hose mender tool. It was used to tighten wire clamps when attaching fittings to hoses, mainly in underground mines on the smaller hand operated rock drills.

Denny Zitek of Grover, Colo., sent in the object. Thanks for sharing this mysterious photo with our readers and congratulations to Ronald Tinkum.
