Mystery Solved

IMG_1641For the past week or so, folks have been trying to determine what this large iron ring is. It was found many years ago near the Bajor farm.

The Ring has 6 nubs...didn't find any's about 10 lbs...severely oxidized..found it in under a foot of dirt about 75 ft from an 1856 Quackenbush-built farmhouse alongside the Bajor property.

Marianne Hermann believes it is a wheel from a corn husking machine. And she provided a link to a photo of one here.

Great detective work, Marianne!

(Ah, shucks!)
