Mystery item stirs curiosity
Do you know what it is?AL WILLIAMS
Dave Galloway is a keen collector of all things agricultural but his latest find has Herald staff stumped.
He found the piece at a second hand shop on a recent trip to Murchison but can't seem to figure out what it is. It did raise his interest however and he parted with $8 for it.
Mr Galloway came into the Herald and asked if readers might be able to help identify it.
The photograph created some discussion on the Herald Facebook page with readers taking a punt on what the device was - but nobody could provide a definitive answer.
Their contributions included a tool used for tailing lambs, an ear tagging device, hand sheers, ear clippers, fencing tool and a hand-strengthening exercise tool.
It is tagged with a logo Meco.
