Default What is this ?

in the bottom of a box of old traps i'd bought was
an old blake and lamb #1 jump trap and this one -


about #1 size, forged jaws, and two springs on the same
end. i don't think the chain and roofing nail swivel attachment
are factory. i've also never seen any chain made like that.
the pan itself is gone and no name or anything anywhere on
the frame or jaws. a squared off rivet holds the cross frame to
the frame.

anyone know what this is ?

also, sorry for the crappy photos.
digital photo technology isn't my cup of tea
anymore than posting photos online is.
if i could still get 35MM film and processing
at a reasonable price, i have a couple of thousand
worth of Nikon stuff i can make professional quality
photographs with. (boat anchors now)

The chain was used by Blake and Lamb years ago, without pan hard to ID. the extra spring was just to strengthen trap.

the inner spring doesn't look add-on to me (although it may well be)
because the eyes are so much smaller than the eyes on any trap
spring i've ever seen, and of the outside spring on this trap.
i've seen some "booster" springs for LS traps before and they didn't
have any eyes at all. i don't know for sure, but i think they just slip
inside the spring, and i'm not sure at all how they are kept in place.
i just thought it was strange to have two springs on one side of a
trap like that. maybe because of the shape of the jaws wouldn't
permit a spring on the other side to function properly.
i have one newer #1 i added a spring to the other side to make a
#11 in a roundabout way, but both sides of jaws are shaped the
same and don't interfere with the action of the added-on spring.

many thanks for any answers regardless

yes thanks to everyone.

i've seen several online now (blake and lamb) that
have that weird chain. it sure looks pretty fragile,
but i guess it's not if they used it a lot.
whatever stepped in this one sure messed things up.
i've never seen the swivel connection at the trap
come apart. the roofing nail they used to replace it
with was sure fragile. it came right apart with just a pull.

i've not seen another tandem spring setup like that though.
maybe something will show up some day.
