103. Primitive Frontier Trader's Scale, very old item which was made using a 14.6" hardwood shaft. The hook is hand forged iron. There are two fulcrum points from which to hang this contraption. Calibration marks appear to be inlaid using silver wire. There are 24 markings along the top of the shaft and 60 calibration markings on one side of the shaft. The original counter weight(s) is missing. Very rare, very old and very interesting.
