Here's a trap currently doing pretty well on ebay - anyone have any info on it? No markings that I can see.

Never seen anything like it, but the spring design looks pretty weak. It would hold a rabbit I guess.

I vaguely remember seeing something like it several years ago but don't remember any details. At first glance I thought maybe an old Goshen but after I looked it up I don't think so. It's going north of $500 so far so I'm pretty curious.

Coil Spring Special made around 1915. Worth between $1500 to $2000.

they are called the "coil spring special" pat date of 1914, I'Il agree with kevtraps price if you can read the pan.

Also missing the chain, and it has a very unique swivel set up.

I seen that on ebay also. Does it take a special setter to set the trap?

Do you have any pictures of the swivel set up or complete trap?

SRC222, Thank you for the pictures. Somebody was thinking outside of the box with this one, very neat trap for sure! Thanks again.

Thanks for the additional photos - looks similar to a Triumph chain rig. I didn't find anything on it in Gerstell's book but Andreski & Parr's guide has it listed as a #4 sized trap made by JH Hutchinson, 1914. Not much info beyond that.

I bet that thing was fun to set...

Sorry for the upside down pics. Not sure what happened there. All good on my end, rotated while uploading. Anybody have that issue?
