Hello from Hazard!
Item No. 874 received one more response from Roy Deemer, of Minford, Ohio. He believes it was used by railroads to hold the operating lever of a operating switch down, which we revealed last week.

Well, this is the third week for Item No. 875, and still no guesses. Longtime Hazard reader, Wayne Cooper, of Fombell, Pa., sent this to us.
He thinks it might be a line-up pin for barn timbers, but he’s not sure.

Moving on, we’ll take a look at another item from Cooper. Does anyone know what Item No. 876 is?
