Here is a great old steel animal trap from a collection of similar traps compiled over the last 47 years by an avid collector of farm and ranch equipment. This is an S. NEWHOUSE No.3 trap, one of the largest from this collection. The fellow at the estate sale said this was used as a coyote trap. Works very well.

Hopefully, the photos will tell the rest of the story as I do not know that much about them. Let me know if you have any questions. (The piece of wire shown in some of the photos was used to hang the trap on the wall as part of the collection.)
