On the head it says Everett, Mass.USA. On the other side it says Porter's "New Easy", Size No. 0. For 5-16 inch bolts. The cutters measure 1" X 5 1/4" X 19"

I believe the body of the horse is made of zinc, but I'm not absolutely sure. If it was painted, most of it is gone. There are traces of red paint left on it. The horse itself measures 9.5" high X 11" wide. The directional is 23.5" long. It has 2 bullet holes and three others that look like beebee holes. None of these went through to the other side. There is also some seam separation and split damage on the body itself. The rod is in good solid shape...
