This is all original. Please look at all the pictures very closely to determine for yourself. If you have questions I will do my best to answer them. Attributed to Wagner and Zwiebel Machine Shop, WI, designed by Ole O. Storle, Patented 1895, cast iron, scarce example, coin is placed in front of tree, pressing lever causes ram to butt into tree, depositing coin while man leans back and appears to mock gesture ram by thumbing his nose, trap is outlined on base but never manufactured. The ram bucks at a man, misses him, hits his head against stump and pushes coin in. The man salutes him with his thumb to his nose. The man is sitting on the ground leaning against the stump facing the ram, the coin is placed on top of the stump and when lever is pressed the above action takes place. This was not designed with a removable base plate to retrieve the coins there for they are usually broken or missing. This one is in tact. Dimensions: 7″ x 4″ x 3.
