Lyle Redding out of Decatur, Nebraska came into the Messenger office with this item.
He said he has no clues as to what it was used for, but he said it used to have a 4-foot length of rotten wood attached where the small piece hangs off the back.
With no more clues to its purpose, I hope readers can help Redding out in identifying what the mystery item would be.
