The 1883 catalogue describes this tool as:
“1109 Best Hard Soldered Measure, for shot only with ebony handle”
This tool is quite different from the ones listed on this website as 1109-1 and 1109-2. Both have 5 or 6 shot weights. This tool has only 2 possibilities. Also the position of the scales. This tool has the scale at the front. The other ones have it at the side.
