You do not come across items like this very often. This is an old (I was told it was probably from the 1930s) chken feeder made by HOEFT and Company INC...MOE'S Line Poultry Supplies (please see photo of excellent inscription) from Chicago, Illinois.The lid opens and closes with no issues. Overall it is in very nice condition. What you see is what you get. NOTE: MAKE ME A DECENT OFFER AND IT IS ALL YOURS! I AM NOT SURE HOW MUCH THIS IS WORTH, SO ALL OFFERS ARE WELCOMED! THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!
