I purchased these in Ouray, Colorado last month. I was told by the seller that he found them at one of the gold camps above Ouray. He thinks that maybe they were used to cut the tin for the mine roofs and the miners shack roofs. The tool is 42 1/2" long, weights about 20 pounds. There is a stamp with initials that I can't make out but underneath is has Buffalo, N.Y. As you can see the ends are bent as if it were used as some kind of pry bar along with metal cutting. Any body have any ideas about this tool ?
