Briggs 1845 Beavertail Corn Sheller

One of the earliest small shellers predating the box-mounted shellers, the Briggs came mounted on a beaver tail shaped board upon which the operator sat to keep the sheller in place and allow free use of both hands. Fine condition, noting one of the four bolts securing the iron sheller to the wood is missing. The cast disk is boldly marked “Briggs Patent June 14, 1845”. Very good condition, with no welds or breaks.
