I am from Guatemala. In my wife’s grandmother’s house, I found this machine. I searched Google and found your article about it. Thanks to you, I’ve learned about it. It’s my pleasure to send a picture of it!

This corn sheller, manufactured by Gould Mfg. Co., Seneca Falls, New York, turned up a long way from home. It likely dates to the late 1800s.
