Recommended Posts

Ron, I'm wondering of your shovels were put together by Bannerman so he could sell the covers?

Ron I have one of these shovels as well and the color is a spot on match to the color on yours. Mine also came in a 1910 RIA Cover like yours but with a standard wire belt hanger.

If it would help sell them, yes!

 

I have one of these shovels too and would love to know the true story behind it.

Hi All, I would appreciate your input on a T-handel shovel I just acquired that has some mystery surrounding it. The cover is marked 1918, but the wire attachment hook was never added at the factory (you can see the "L" shaped mark showing where it should be sewn on at the factory). Why no attachment? strange. Also, I have found no US markings on the shovel although it matches many of the pictures on here as an early T-Handle. Can you guys please look and let me know what you think? This is the best resource with knowledgeable people I have found on this subject so far. Thank you!
