**Please be patient.....Lots of photos to inspect**
Type of scale that was used in a "Mom & Pop" General Store.
On the back of the scale is a sticker from the BUREAU of WEIGHTS & MEASURES with the seal of the CITY of BUFFALO - LOUIS J. SCHUSTER, sealer. A date is penciled in when the scale was last inspected. It is difficult to read, but looks like 1940's.
Approximate measurements are: 7 3/4" diameter of the face of the scale.11" diameter of the bottom pan. When hanging, the approx length is about 29".
The scale appears to be working correctly. There is an adjustment screw for accuracy.
The face has some staining & pitting, but I do notdetect any paint loss. I think it has a fabulous vintage patina & that adds to it's character!
The entire scale needs a good cleaning. I do not want to do that for fear of ruining it.
There is some paint chipping here and there and some surface rust. Mostly on the back (reverse side of the face).
The bottom pan has been repainted on the top.
Please inspect all the photos. They are a large part of the description.
