    Re: Weird "anchor"

    Lu, I wonder if it could be either a promotional model, a salesman's sample, or
    a patent model. Sometimes scale models were made (of many products) to submit
    with a patent application, or for salesmen to carry around with them instead of
    large bulky objects--which anchors certainly could be.<G>
