Vintage Original Antique WINCHESTER FIREARMS COMPANY SHOVEL Spade

Oak Handle & Blade are both clearly marked with the Winchester Firearms company logo...stamped into the steel shovel & on backside of wooden handle. Blade is marked D 14

Tool measures 41" long & 7" wide @ base

I collect & deal in american primitives...this is a shovel from around 1870-1900 or before ....with 1-piece Carved oak handle....has very-old-style rivets that connect the wood to metal section (metal section was cast as 1 piece except the 2 small foot rests which were riveted on) . I have never seen or heard of a WINCHESTER SHOVEL BEFORE...winchester in addition to weapons (guns) made knives,screwdrivers + some small hand tools...but I can not find this on ebay or anyw else

This is one of the best pieces of my collection but finances force me to sell it.
