What Is It? July 2021

   We had no correct answers for our July’s What Is It. Perhaps if we had shown the front view it would have been easier to identify.
   This object is a combination lock made in 1869. The exquisite workmanship, even its brass mechanism, visible in this rear view, is decorated.
   It was made by the Herring Company of New York City. The key, inserted from the rear, was used to reset the combination.
   Give August’s What Is It a try. We wish you luck!
