This is an antique American salesman's sample, patent model post digger in its original box. It measures 10" in length & 1 1/4" at its widest point. The painted metal section is marked "Pat. applied for". This sample was found with a written order in the box which reads: "Post Digger, Wallace S. Judd Sr. to be made for Avery Stamping Co." This model is in excellent condition & the box is secure with some expected wear. A great addition to any collection! NYS buyers please add sales tax. Thanks.
