About 5 1/8” x 2 ¼”. Painted. Inside is a portable scale used to measure gold for exchange between citizens. During the first half of the 19th century and into the mid to later years gold was exchanged for trade between citizens, especially after the gold strikes in the western states. These scales were sold by local merchants. Nice patriotic tin.
