Here is a rare find! exciting! I found this from eBay today. This Enterprise No 3 grinder is in its original untouched condition with its original paint on it. All parts are there and claim the grinder was never repaired once. The color of the original paint is just beautiful. It was really well kept, in my opinion.
Another great thing about this auction is that the seller is offering free shipping. He says he is willing to personally deliver the product if you live on alongside I95. Or, if the packages are smaller than 30sq inch, he will mail ship the package for free.
There’s no reserve price for this auction. At the time of writing, there are 14 bids and the price is set at $570.

That Enterprise No 3 looks authentic to me. That catch box drawer is legit with the letter “N” on the left and the number 3 on the right. It should be about 15″ tall and weighs 22 lbs with 10″ wheels. The drawing on the cast iron hopper can vary actually. Those are hand-drawn by the workers.
As you can see, the original drawing and the colors are different. Maybe it’s a variation or repainted at some point. I have my doubts on the “original painting” claim, but maybe I don’t know all the variations.
