These came on an old Midland I picked up last year. I know I've seen them somewhere but can't seem to find where. I was thinking they were Simplicity or Wards. They weigh 26# and change.
Thanks

I would say they are Simplicity since Midland built the Sim. gt for Wards in the 50's. They came with the Gt new more then likely.

They are not Simplicity weights but I'm not sure what they are. Maybe Massey??

Depending on what they're for is going to decide if I'm going to get rid of them or not. I just wish I could figure out where I seen the ones like them.
