    This is one of two posts showing some items I have acquired related to the Milburn Wagon Co. which moved to Toledo, Ohio from Indiana in 1875. It became the largest manufacturer of farm wagons in the world until the end of the century. Eventually as automobiles became a more affordable method of transportation, Milburn attempted to move into that industry but the success was short lived. I have a Milburn cast iron plate/sign that would have been affixed to the wagon as a method of identification and advertising. The No. 83 designated the model number, which dated to approximately 1885. I also have a advertisement that is dated around 1879, and an advertisement calendar (showing the back only) which is dated 1890. The final picture is the back of the 1879 ad that shows a western confrontation while riding a Milburn wagon.

      Very Nice!

      I have always been fascinated with old buggies, and owned a doctors buggy for several years.
      Any idea where this was used on the wagon? It looks rather heavy and a lot of holes to be just an identification tag.

      Thanks AzTom, I have looked around online and have not been able to fugure out exactly where this was placed on the wagon. It weighs in the 6-10 pound area.

      We have both front and rear axles with hardware and name plate for model no. 85 Milburn wagon. Any suggestions where I could find out what it might be worth?

      I found a No.81 northwest of Nashville, very similar to the one pictured. Any information on this piece would be great! Thanks!
