Or at least that looks like what it was.
Some people back then made their own dough cutting or crimping tools by riveting a Large Cent to a handle.
Thought I'd share mine.
I have my thoughts on the Sheldon number but..not 100% sure.

This is amazing! How many of us would have tossed this in the trash? Thanks so much for posting this great tangible piece of history.

Now, that's one early crimper, v!
Are you thinking 1796 Breen obverse 4 (S-84, 85, 86, 87)? Any luck on that reverse?

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for one of the baking sessions.

I love stuff like this. Somewhere someone repaired his wife's broken dough perferator
instead of just buying a new one.

"How many of us would have tossed this in the trash?"

Progress... now we are throwing it all away.

Go for an entire pie crimper date set. I bet they are out there. I once considered making a date set with cents where they had the crude alteration of the E to a U on the reverse.

Thanks guys.

p, I'm convinced it's 1796 and appears to be an obv. 4.
I'm still researching the reverse..there are a few defining devices visible enough to pair it hopefully :-)

Great minds think alike!
The OF sure is clear, for what that's worth. In your pic, the last A in AMERICA is at the very bottom, with the ribbons a bit clockwise from there. I'm thinking that A is awfully close to that right hand ribbon. Perhaps so close that the tip of the outer leaf at the bottom right cluster may point between I and C, rather than C and A. Is that what you were thinking? The reverse that would fit that picture would also probably be the one most statistically likely.

WOW I'd post over at the secret EAC forum - if you are a member, they'd love to see this one John! I'm thinking it's more a gear than a pie crimper, but who really knows?

P.S. If you are not an EAC member let me know if I can post it for you? I'd be happy to, and I'd bet the S# variety would be a pretty good and quick answer coming from them.

It is a pie crimper. It is too irregular to be a gear.

I want it!
