Ox Yoke Puzzle

Puzzles of many kinds intrigued the children of the 19th century. This puzzle, with a few variations, appeared in a number of period publications including Godey's Ladies' Magazine and Peterson's Magazine. After seeing how to solve it (seven distinct steps, a copy is enclosed with the puzzle), the solution becomes almost obvious. But consider yourself lucky. The puzzles displayed in the period magazines did not have the solution as part of the directions.

The cost of an Ox Yoke Puzzle is $5.00
