You're on a roll! Jealous of that Puget sound! Awesome!
Thanks. My lucks been a little better than usual the last couple months.
Man, you are having a good week! I gotta find some "stops" like that! Very nice!!
Love these two! Good thing you stopped, those axes might still be there holding up the wall
Great score on the Legitimus!!
Nice heads. They have definitely been leaning a while.
Great looking axes. That western pattern is my favorite.
Those old DBs always have warped handles.
All from an auction earlier today. Two True Temper Flint Edge Kelly Works, two Plumbs and some no names(maybe find a name when I get them cleaned up).
I'd call that a pretty good day! Great job!
Thanks, yes it was a good day!! All for $66.50, so I feel I did pretty decent.
You did damn good.
Well you nailed it! That label was the correct company though the position of the "&" on it and the absence of an "&" on my hatchet made it fairly impossible to reach a conclusion without solid evidence. Which thankfully I just found! My little hatchet is a Bigelow and Dowse! Aroostook brand and just has the rooster there hanging out.
Here's the front stamp from the hatchet again;
I had a hunch if I bought Thomas Lamond's book on southern New England I'd find the answer. The label you found is there to the left...
That full page;
This hatchet has an inlaid bit and a welded on carbon steel poll as well. I don't know when in the 1900's everyone transitioned to either overlaid bits or solid tool steel. I always felt that inlaid bits dated things to 1800's- very early 1900's. But I don't know that! Anybody have any thoughts on when inlaid bits were phased out? Thanks again for your help! Mystery solved!
That TT flint edge California peeler is a nice one, it looks a lot like my TT handmade 4lber except the weight stamp is on the opposite bit.
Wow, sounds like you found all the info you were looking for! Can you sleep again now? That was quite a journey tracking all that down. That is quite an impressive find, and now it has a great addition to its story! Way to go sticking with it! Very nice find!
Well that makes it even better! You got some good stuff in there. Let us know if you find any sleeper stamps.
Thats a super haul for any day of the week! You cleaned up at that auction i bet...good for you!!!
Love it all!!
This followed me home about 2 months ago and I’m finally getting around to posting it. The one side says Warranted Glassport PA USA and the other has the AA&T Co. has anyone seen this stamp before? Thanks!
That's nice! I've never seen it in person but I've seen it a few times online. I bet it's nice to have one man congrats!
Can anyone ID this head? Someone ground down where the makers mark might have been. Also snagged some NOS hatchet handles.
Nice! If I'm not mistaken that's a Collins legitimus made for export... A damn fine axe you've got! I have one similar but mine has a square poll. Measurements are also very similar. Mine measures 10" long and the bit measures 7".
Well that's a darn shame someone ground off the stamp!!!!
