Anyone for sledding? I had a sled just like this as a child and let me tell you-it was heavy! You kids today have no idea how good you have it with lightweight plastic sleds. Try pulling all that wood and steel up a hill over and over. I remember it being a very special purchase as sleds were expensive-the good ones anyway. It did hold up to a lot of use and abuse, but damn, that thing was a pain to lug.
I don't think this brooch is that old, but the silver plate could use a polishing.
