Combination hopper, with "seed vision" sight window. Looks to be in remarkably good condition.

yeah, we have several of them with the seed window but I don't recall the extra ridges at the top. Maybe they have them though....

I believe Joe B has some NOS replacement seed windows that fit those hoppers too.

There was no less than 3 styles of galvanized straight side combination hoppers offered. Window/non window, and spring lid hold downs versus snap on lids. The extra beads in the sheet metal give the lid something to hang on. Straight sides are something like half-bushel capacity, offset are full-bushel if I recall correctly. The cast pieces are the same on the bottom.
Here is a majority of the styles side by side.

That is a nice collection of seed hoppers JoeB. Are all of those NOS?

All were NOS except the two bottom left. I restored the two on the bottom left, they were richmond bottoms with adapter rings for combination hoppers. The photo is from last year, none of them are here anymore.
