THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST WINDMILL WEIGHTS. I HAVE ONLY SEEN 3 THAT ARE FROM THE PERIOD. MOST AREN'T. IT IS 16" TALL X 13" X 2 3/4". WEIGHT IS 56 LBS. IT HAS TRACES OF OLD SILVER PAINT. THE CASTING IS VERY SMOOTH AND CRISP. I OWNED THIS 25 YEARS AGO, SOLD IT AND RECENTLY BOUGHT IT BACK. FOR THE SERIOUS COLLECTOR.BEFORE THAT IT WAS IN A TEXAS COLLECTION. A VERY FINE PIECE OF HISTORY. MADE BY THE HILDRETH IRON WORKS. HILDRETH, NEB. THE LETTER "B' WAS FOR THE PATTERN MAKER: BURT WITTERS.
