Platform Counter Scale

This device at Smith’s Tavern is a platform counter scale.  It has a system of levers, below the platform, which transfer the load to the weighing resistance, no matter where the load is placed on the platform.  

This scale at Smith’s Tavern is made of black cast iron and has two counter-arms with sliding weights to obtain an accurate calculation.  Unfortunately, there are no maker’s marks on this device so no further information is available.
