Mystery Photo 5-26-12

Averill Hudnall, wondered if any of our readers would know what this item is and how it is used.

If you think you know the answer and could use $10, then send your answer in to the Fence Post – Plains Edition’s Mystery Photo Contest.

The deadline for this month’s contest is Saturday June 16, so feel free to send in your answers to take a shot at winning $10 from the Fence Post. We’ll toss all the correct answers in a hat and draw a winner. If no correct answers are received we’ll share the answer with our readers in next month’s Mystery Photo Contest and go on from there. 

We received 12 entries in last month’s Mystery Photo Contest, all of which were correct! Our winner is Vincent Marvin of Imperial, Neb.

The object is a Hide Scale. Many people said that there is a hook missing off of the bottom. They were actually two scales in one – one side weighed up to 50 pounds and the other could weigh up to 400 pounds.

Slim Bergmann of Jamesport, Mo., sent in this mystery photo. Thanks to everyone who entered! Thanks Slim Bergmann for submitting this photo and congratulations Vincent Marvin!

We still need your help – and your Mystery Photos. If you have an antique piece of equipment, or know of an unusual or unique building or landmark (no photos of obscure landscapes) take a clear photo of it and send it to the Fence Post – Plains Edition’s Mystery Photo Contest.

If your photo is used we’ll send you $10 and your name and photo will get printed in the Fence Post for your friends and family to see and admire. All photos will be returned following publication.

Please send all inquiries to:

the Fence Post – Plains Edition, Mystery Photo Contest, P.O. Box 1690, Greeley, CO 80632
