Any clue what this is?

Recommended Posts

Cleaned out a shed for an ol boy and found this odd shaped hammer. It is stamped with 3/4 and a makers mark which I can't make out, but thought someone here might know what it is and what it is used for?

Is the smaller rounder part three quarters of an inch? One of the experts will come along with a better idea. But to me it looks like a handled punch. The mushroomed larger part looking to be where the tool would have been struck.

Yes the round  part is 3/4 and indeed it has had the square end beat on. I didn't figure it was a blacksmithing tool, but could be wrong. It might become a blacksmiting tool though some day.

A nice find to be sure. Just be sure to clean up the mushrooming. It can lead to easier chipping and is a safety concern.
