Odd straight peen?

I was rummaging for steel a while back and found this in the corner of a machine shed on the family farm with a broken handle and did a quick belt sand on it.  Since one of my numerous questions was about large diameter stock I had to find the biggest hammer head I had on hand to try out a suggestion today so I shoved a new handle in it.  The handle is an engineering handle from Rural King and had to be trimmed a bit to fit into the existing hole.  It came out with a distinct angle and the had mass (Or at least the stamp) is around 6#.  Anyone have an idea what it was for originally?
