I got this old mallet/hammer from a dealer many years ago. I have seen a few of these over the years but most of them the face is really chewed up from use. This one is in pretty good shape. I am not sure what it was used for originally (maybe from amusement game where you swing the mallet and try to ring the bell, or maybe was used for pegging wood structures, or mabe corking casks?) It is quite heavy, would like to see the guy that could swing this thing all day. I would like to know what it may have been used for, can anyone help?
Personally I use it as a "motivator" to "encourage" my physical therapy patients and add a little humor to their routine.
