  • What is it???

    I was wondering the eastern counties of Ohio this weekend. I stopped in at this little general store had stuff I remember from when I was in high school. The lady who ran the place had lots of thing in and around the store and she said that I could look in all of the drawers and cabinets. I did run across her deceased husbands WW II discharge from the Marines and property documents that were hand drawn.

    I found this in the back storage place hanging on a nail, It had been there for a while. Most of the tag had been torn off of the ticket. She sold it to me for $3.00. I have been looking for a strng forged or welded ring, but does any one know what this is?

    Possibly a hitching ring part of the harness gear from the horse drawn days.
    Cheers.

        Looks like a rear brake adjuster off a Hardly Dangerous motor cycle.

            This is an area that has hay farmers, Amish and no real industry. Other than the Ohio river, there is no big water.

            I think it's something from a harness of some type, maybe for pulling wagons or buggys.

              Yeah, looks related to pulling harness. I just can't picture what it connects to.

              I suspect the two pins are riveted over after installation.

                John,

                I am asking you as an englishman and gentleman as opposed to a north of the wall person because I need a proper answer....

                If you see more than one haggis together, is the correct plural term "haggis's" or "haggii" or "haggies".

                I hope you can clear this up for me because I thought it might be profitable to start breeding them.

                  I always thought it was Haggis's but after having recently seen a picture of Alistair I think Hagard would be a better and accurate plural.
