James Shelby Union Corn PlanterSpoon 

I purchased a James Shelby Union corn planter. It has patent dates from 1868 to 1876 on the wood seat. It has rotary drop on the seed covers and wood spoke wheels. It will partner up with the Keystone planter I restored. Does anyone have information on this piece?

I’m also restoring a New Holland 6-inch mill and need information on it as well: specifically, lettering, stencil and the wood base.
