Answer to yesterdays What is this ?  
This interesting piece was made by the Buffalo Scale Company in Buffalo, New York. and is a Grain Tester.

Here is the catalog description:
The Buffalo Grain Tester is constructed so that when the cup is empty the beam balances with the poise set at zero. There are upon the beam three rows of marks which indicate respectively:

1st The number of pounds a sample will weigh to the bushel
2nd The exact weight of sample
3rd The per cent of loss after cleaning.

Capacity on their scales range from 1/2 pint to 2 quarts.
