Leg Hold Traps

Description:

These are Victor brand leg hold traps, size 1 and 2. They are made of metal. [from "Steel Traps", by A. R. (Arthur Robert) Harding. Published by A. R. Harding Publishing Co. Columbus, Ohio; Copyright 1907]. "A lighter grade of stock is used in manufacturing these traps so that they can be made somewhat cheaper than the Newhouse and although not as strong, they are a good reliable trap. The Nos. 2, 3 and 4 are all double spring and made for fox, otter and beaver and while trappers catch large numbers of these animals in Victor traps, yet the more experienced ones prefer the Newhouse traps even at the advanced price".
