Mystery Photo Contest 1-30-12

Do you know what this is?

Spencer Swann of Woodland Park, Colo., sent this photo in. He is wondering if any of our readers know anything about this farm tool.

On the four little half inch protrusions there are letters.  On one side it says, PAT9 and on the other side it says 1881.  Each letter and number is on the solid part of the thing and partially in the four appendages. 

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, which is published in the last issue of the month. Entries can be mailed or faxed to (970) 352-7164.

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

We received two entries – both of which were correct – for last month’s Mystery Photo Contest!

Our winner, Wes Stratman of Pueblo, Colo., identified the object as a tool to sharpen blades on a horse drawn disk harrow. “While the machine was moving through the field, the operator walked behind and placed the fork shaped end over the spacer spool.”

The photo was sent in by Art Hageman of Douglas, Wyo. Congratulations to Wes Stratman and thanks to Art Hageman for sharing this mysterious photo with our readers! v
