My first iron pour , thought it would be fun to try Abe and a medallion. They are not perfect but I am happy with the results. A lot of fun, I will try again next year. Rod.

Cool Rod! Sounds like fun. The real Old Abe was quite a celebrity in his day for an old bird.

I happen to have a few extra 16" Eagles laying around, and several 8" Eagles of both the TM design, and the later "CASE" design. Some are painted, and some the original "rust". FYI the TM Eagles were from before 1928. Email is open for inquiries. DK

Where did you get the molds? Is the finished product a casting?

I understand that old Abe started as a WW I symbol. That would make it likely pre1920.

Maybe someone has better info. JI Case may have been required to do some modifications for legal reasons.

Don't know how close you have to be to see they are not perfect but they look perfect from Oklahoma.

I would love to see your foundry setup. Our local foundry about 6 miles away shut down a couple of years ago and I sure miss it.
