    Re: what was it used for?

    I just wanted to thank yins for the responses, the more I look at hooks the more I think a definite answer will not be found but I learned a lot so I am thinking it pulled a chain probably as part of a singletree or similar horse/mule drawn devise. To me its a keeper.

    It looks like a pelican hook. They are used in the oilfield to pick up individual pieces of pipe. One hook goes in each end of the pipe and a crane picks it up. Could be mistaken, though.
