    The nut on the left bolt is square. The nut on the right bolt looks to be hex. Hex nuts are not near as old as square. Early 1900's if it indeed is a hex nut. Gary

    Could be the back plate for a mold board on a plow. The hex nut could have been added later if the square nut was lost.

    From the looks of this plow diagram, I'd say that's a possibility. Gary

    With those long bolts I chose the timber coupler rather than farm machinery parts. Plow parts would have two pieces of iron on the bolts and the timber coupler would only have the iron coupler on the bolts with the wood timber long gone due to decay.
