Egg Scale

Here is another example of an egg scale from our collection. The Acme Egg Grading Scale manufactured by the Specialty Manufacturing Company, St. Paul, MN. It is made of aluminum and has the manufacturer and patent date stamped on the front fan. Each fan is marked with a weight between 19 and 30 ounces. When an egg is place in the cup on the right, the fans on the left fold up to show the weight of the egg.  Donated by Robert and Mary Ellen Jibben, 2013:032:006 #WhatsNewWednesday
