Up for bid is an antique brass and iron hanging scale. I was told it is possibly from the mid 1850's. The weight beam? is brass with iron fittings,a brass counter weight and a lead weight at the front to zero it. This beauty can weigh up to 100 pounds,thats more than most. It is maker stamped "Gurney & Ware , Hamilton,Ont." on both sides as well as having the Lb increments on both sides. The bell shaped counterweight is stamped 18K on one side and 19L O7 on the other. The underside of the front is stamped 21934,possibly a registration number.

As a bonus I am adding a book titled Saga of a City, It tells 330 years of history and progress in Hamilton. Lots of interesting information. Photos are at the bottom under the map of places I have sent the items I have sold.
