I saw this little hammer sitting in a toolbox at a yard sale, and it looked so old and beautiful, I had to have it! I bought and began to examine it because I'd never seen anything like it. On the metal part it has a #5 stamped into the hammers head and on the lower shaft, it has C.S.Osborne. I found out that it was a 100 year old saddle maker's or leather workers hammer, and that C.S. had took over the family business from his brother, H.F., and that the company had been in business since 1826.
It looks to be in perfect useable condition.
