Christopher Steele takes pride in his unique collection of penny scales. At one time, these coin-operated weighing machines stood on street corners and in public places, and provided people with an opportunity to weigh themselves without having to go to a doctor's office. His collection chronicles 100 years of American ingenuity and industrial design.
