This is an authentic bear trap with an excellent pan. The pan is clearly legible reading S.NEWHOUSE, COMMUNITY, N.Y., No.6. The trap shows light rusting and pitting overall but does show some of the original finish overall. This piece will display very well in any collection and it measures 43” when fully extended. The teeth are riveted to the trap. The chain is as pictured. The springs are unmarked. This is a great piece so look close.
