Fake Shapleigh Day & Co Miniature PlowBy

Fake Shapleigh Day & Co. Miniature Plow

This miniature wood and iron plow is marked Shapleigh Day & Co but it is a new item. Original items marked Shapleigh Day are of interest to tool and hardware collectors. Shapleigh bought out its rival competitor E. C. Simmons - Keen Kutter. All items marked Keen Kutter and Shapleigh are highly collectible.

This new reproduction piece, about 14 inches high, was first spotted in 1999. No old counterpart is known.
