More info
I would guess the date of this chain is circa 1880, primarily because of the handles
The chain consists of 100 individual links connected by iron rings, all 9 brass tally tags - each shaped to indicate partial chain measurements, and two brass handles
This chain was made by the famous firm of Chesterman in Sheffield, which was for a long time one of the most important manufacturing centers in England for precision steel instruments
The chain measures 66 feet in length which equals 4 ‘poles’
Edwin Gunter of England initiated its common use for measuring land boundaries in the early 1600s
