Wall-Hanging Coffee Mill

This tool at Smith’s Tavern is a Kings Patent Best Quality Coffee Mill, with said inscription on a stamped brass oval nameplate at the center of the device.  There is an S-curve crank that is missing its original wooden handle attached to a flat iron shaft. The handle is attached to a sheet iron hopper triangular in shape with a sheet iron lid.  The mill body is cast iron and is circular with two flanges on sides for mounting screws (it was wall mounted). The exit shoot out the bottom for finished product to fall out. On the inside of the hopper is a rectangular hole through which coffee beans can pass.  The rectangle hopper lid is missing.
