      I would be in the treasure category. I paid my way through college as a survey party chief and plumb bobs were/are an essential field tool, Most are made of brass. They have a little weight to them so they can drop quickly and pointed so they stick in the ground where you drop them-- to set a point in the field. They can also be used to set the level rod on to 'turn an elevation'. A plumb bob was used by early surveyors to set out the public lands system. Almost every survey monument found at a section corner (square mile) was set by one of these.

      But, no way would I pay $17k.

          That's why I bought my plumb bobs through Amazon Prime.

            It's all about the Prime!

            I didn't realize how great it is until I did the 30 month trial and saw all of the shows/movies, my dog food is shipped free, not to mention anything else I buy, and the streaming music at work?? It is well worth it!

              And if you get an alexa with a prime account it is actually very cool. If not a little creepy

                Now hold on... If these were in fact vintage, antique or whatever name you choice to put on them... First of all how old are some of those? What is the current market value of a plumb Bob from...1875 worth? How does one age a plumb Bob? How does one verify the age of a plumb Bob? Are there plumb bob experts who can verify age and value?
