The Shafer Historical Museum, Winthrop, Wash., is looking for help to identify this old horse-drawn corn planter.

The Shafer Historical Museum, Winthrop, Wash., has an old horse-drawn corn planter with no identification on it except for the name “Roved” on the metal seed canisters. Parts numbers include P223, P410, P247, P262 and P213. It has traces of yellow paint; one wheel is blue and one is green. We have looked high and low and can’t find any information about this company or model. Any ideas?
