    Small Part Looks Like It Reads "Ford"

    Found in a very old part of town today, it looks like it says "Ford" on it but is broken off, about 1 1/2 " long and solid not hollow.

    Thanks, Nat

    Dang, only half inch long? That’s even too short to be a piece of a toggle switch!

    possibly a piece of a broken tool from either a model T or Model A factory tool kit. Ford also sold other tools as well

    I wonder if it might say Toro like the lawn tractors or lawn mowers.What looks like a line making it a F might just be a scratch.
