Looks more like an earth anchor than a hole digger.
There isn't enough screw to carry the loose dirt out of the hole, but
the blades will cut their way into the ground and allow the hole to
close back around the shaft, making it difficult to pull it loose
without unscrewing it. The eye at the top of the shaft would allow a
rope or chain to be fastened there, tethering whatever is attached to
the other end of the rope.

I've got about 15 different types of sand casting patterns, and only a
couple of them are yellow on the inside, I guess different companies had
different color standards. Also, some of them are red and black, and others
are brown and black.
I couldn't find any photos on the web of any of these that look like mine, I
was thinking that the red colored area was removed in the finished piece,
leaving the middle hollow.
This may have been asked/answered before, but does anyone know or remember a
TV Game show LONG time ago that would have unusual objects and 2 wrong and 1
correct answer were given? If you do remember the name of the show I would
appreciate you sharing it with me :-)
Yeah, I <do> remember that. I think Soupy Sales was one of the
celebrities. Three celebs would provide ideas for what the object was,
and the contestant had to guess which celeb was telling the truth. I
think the show was about the same time as "Whats my Line" and "to tell
Your description is similar to that of a game show called "Liar's Club",
except that in "Liar's Club" three of four celebrities provided incorrect
answers. Also, it wasn't produced a LONG time ago. It was produced in
1969, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1988. The host in 1969 was Rod Serling. Other
hosts were Bill Armstrong (1976-1977), Allen Ludden (1977-1978), and Eric
