Mystery Photo 6-30-12

Slim Bergmann of Jamesport, Mo., 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 July 20, 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 six entries in last month’s Mystery Photo Contest, three of which were correct!

Our winner is Lois Cotton of Stapleton, Neb. She identified the as a wrought iron string holder. It was used in most grocery stores to wrap the packages. The top comes off and the ball of string sits in the middle with the end coming out of a hole on the side.

Averill Hudnall of Imperial, Neb., sent in this mystery photo. Thanks to everyone who entered! Thanks to Averill Hudnall for submitting this photo and congratulations Lois Cotton!
