I am selling a ANTIQUE BRASS GRAIN PROBE manufactured by the SEEDBURO EQUIPMENT COMPANY which was established in Chicago Illinois in the year 1912. (see picture).

ID Label gives the following infromation: "SEEDBURO EQUIPMENT COMPANY: SEED TRADE REPORTING BUREAU: TRADEMARK: SEEDBURO QUALITY, EST. CHICAGO, ILL. 1912"

I acquired this probe many years ago and ithas been stored in my barn for several years and I have no need of it now, so I would like to sell the item. The probe is used, but functions very well, I know of no problems with the unit.

The probe comes in two sections which one fits inside the other. The probe is approximately 40 inches long and contains 6 each openings to collect grain. five of the openings are 1"w x 3 1/2"L, and one is 1"w x 2"L. A serial /identification number " 39 " is etched into each unit in the first grain opening below the handle.

The two units lock into place by a guide pin which allows the unit to be rotated to pick up grain and to rotate back locking the grain inside, at which time the probe would be removed from the grain and the grain dumped into the sample receptacle.

Thanks for bidding,
