Awsome garage sale find today. We don't use too many sleds in Texas so didn't know much about them. I have used some Flexable Flyers in Christmas displays but not a sled like this. 35" in length 10" high all wood with metal facing the runners. I asked how much and he said make an offer. I explained that I'm a cheap buyer so I'll offer $5 and when he countered at $10 I almost ripped my pocket getting the money out. I did some research this was referred to as a transport sled for carrying supplies. Made in Switzerland Davos sleds were used by German soldiers to carry ammunition through the snow. Also saw it referred to as a childs sled on one auction site. I'm going with transport sled. No way to guide it and has pull on front to attach a rope. Maybe someone from snow and ice country can solve the mystery Hope I didn't pay too much!!! Has been persnolized with the name Serbin on underneath. Thanks for looking.
