    Its a tool to do something like dip something? I swear I know what it is but cant remember! Its black metal, 29" long, about 3/8"w and 1/4 thick. It has marks at every inch on the shaft. Obviously hand made and old. One end has a small "corkscrew" on it like maybe to screw into something to pick it out of a liquid??? The other end has like a shelf thing to lower something into a liquid maybe? I'm lost! Sorry about bad pics.

      It is a "mud spoon" used by miners to scrape out (horizontally) or lift out (vertically) debris from a hole bored for placing a blasting charge. The inch markings measured the depth of the hole. I don't know what the "corkscrew" was for; possibly to help loosen compacted debris in the bottom of the hole.
