Note that the top is almost identical to the stand. That's the gaff. So, this wheel can function as a gaffed wheel or as a "square" one, depending on which piece is used as a top and which one is used as the stand.

This gaff is ranked in the top five of all gambling collectibles. Numbers are hand painted. Circa 1920.
