You are bidding on an old horn type seed sower. The horn itself is made from soldered tin and is 24" long, and 1-1/2" in diameter at the large end and 3/4" in diameter at the small end. The horn comes apart in 3 pieces to expose a tin dial that can be turned to regulate the flow of seed. The horn has a few small dings and some surface rust, but is still in pretty good shape. The bag is in good condition as far as old seeders go. It has 6 or 8 small holes (Less than 1/8") and some stains that can be seen in the photos. The unique thing about the bag is the nice graphics that are still in great condition. They read..."Horn...Trade Mark...Seed Sower...Pat'd...Other Pat's Pending...Mfg. at Urbana, Ind., U.S.A.".

My father who is an old time retired farmer called these the poor man's seeder as they weren't very expensive and the poorer farmers tended to use them. This one is actually marked $1.89 with some kind of crayon type marker. Just to add some interest we are going to list it with an opening bid of $1.89.

Shipping is $8.95 or less. (U.S. only) If the shipping calculates to more than $8.95, I will mark it back to that figure and ship it in a flat rate priority box.
