CONGRATULATIONS TO BC AND AMY FOR TODAYS CORRECT GUESSES... IT WAS A GOVERMENT SCALE USED BY AGENTS AND BANKERS TO DETERMINE IF A GOLD COIN WAS REAL OR COUNTERFIT.
TODAYS GIZ IS 11 1/2 INCHES LONG. COULDNT FIND A PIC THAT SHOWED HOW IT WORKED SO I FOUND THE ORIGINAL PATENT SCHEMATIC TO HELP YOU OUT. NOTICE THAT THE PICTURE AND SCHEM IS DIFFERENT, BUT THEY ARE THE EXACT SAME DEVICE WITH THE PIC SHOWING IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ORIGINAL DESIGN.  PATENT SAID 1870 SOMETHING AND WAS IN USE TILL THE 1920,S AND 30'S.

WHAT IS IT ???
