    Smile Posting for a friend.

    A good friend of mine dug this up awhile back and hasn't figured out exactly what it is. He supplied the pics, alongside a rule, for a better idea of the size. My initial thought is, the remains of an old farming hoe. He doesn't think so.
    Ya know, it doesnt have to be an exotic million dollar find! I offered to post these photos to get some other input. Rusty iron or a shiny gold piece ............. sometimes just figuring out what ya dug is half the fun
    I thank you in advance and will check back soon to see what ya'll think it is!

    My guess is a hand held weeder. The square tapered end is exactly how things were hafted onto a handle. I just returned from a store that sells birdseed, dog food, etc, and I saw a modern version of a short handled weeder just like what you have. The blade was about 1 1/2 inches wide. LTD

    I'm with LTD, looks like a digger. Photo #2 shows what looks like the collar that would go over the end of the handle wood.

    Hi My Fellow TH'ers
    I think that Bob is on the right track. I don't think it is quite as old as 'Colonial' but most likely a hoe that the blade has broken off of. That round part on the shaft would lock the shank onto the wood handle.
    ;-)
