Weight Beam Scale


The scale, once polished, now rusted , has a steel beam which has a trace of markings. Poise, rusted, seems to be intact. Heavier weights and the metal which suspended them are missing. Lighter weight, also rusted, still slides along the bar. Earl Hall dug this up when he lived in a house built by C. Marinus, which has now burned; on land now belonging to McGuire [D. Callaway].
