Vintage Toledo Scale
I've seen large classic scales like this one at the enterances to gyms. I've seen them as the centerpiece to classic weight rooms, giving the facility a focal point with height and a message.
Asked why I would ever get rid of such an awesome focal point for my warehouse gym, the answer is simple, I found an even older scale to put in it's position. After all, every gym needs a scale.
I estimate this to be from the 1950s, but that is just a guess. It certainly has that look. I purchased it from the BGSU Varsity Sports Weight Room when they did a major overhaul 9 years ago. There is a calibration sticker from 1997, but there is also one that is clearly much older, but the date has rubbed off. Toledo started making digital scales in the late 1960s. This is a one of a kind item, meaning that when it sells, then it is gone and we will remove it from the web site.

This scale does have small wheels, which cannot be seen in the photo. I have no idea what it actually weighs (for shipping purposes-but it would need serious crating anyway.) It is heavy steel and cast iron.
