tool question

I found this hammer at a flea market it was the only old and rusty tool there and I knew what it was as soon as I seen it. I thought it was a fullering tool but my dad thinks its just a strait pein hammer but the hitting face is covered with marks that look like it was hit with sledge hammers the face is flared out and the pein is vary thick. the hammer is hand forged and deeply pitted and I paid $3 for it I also gave it a new handle

Naw, straight pein possibly a stone mason's dressing hammer. Just because idiots hit a hammer with a bigger hammer doesn't change one to a top fuller. She'll clean up well and make a fine hammer at your anvil if not don't get carried away cleaning it up and use it for a wall hanger or paper weight on your desk.
