N.C.B. Round-Mouth Shovel.
Made from sheet steel and wood. This is a No2 round mouth shovel, with a bent shaft. Size 38″ x 11″ inches.
The blade of the shovel seems to have been made from one sheet of steel formed around the steam bent handle for strength (as seen left) it is a work of art!
The N.C.B. logo is stamped into the back of the stick.
