This older Yankee brace bears 1923 and 25 patent dates, and all the marks of an early Philadelphia made brace. It has the proper brown composition handles, with red infill. “Bell System” is stamped on the lower bow. The brace is dark with some grease that a bath of mineral spirits will easily remove. While there are dings in the brass ratchet housing, there is nothing serious. The fabulous ratchet works extremely smoothly. It is in the usual 10" sweep and is a great user brace. Easily Good.
