    I have this posted on "today's finds" but found this thread as I was getting info on it.
    What caused the remaining wood in the ax to be petrified?
    Age? Properties changing in wood due to the iron?
    Any guesses on age of this?

    I think the wood just gets hard because it's sheltered by the iron around it. Not that it's petrified--just that it hasn't been expis d to as many elements and therefore hadn't rotted yet (lack of as much air getting to it being the chief reason). I've dug gun barrels with the ramrods still inside before. [QuUOTE=neohiodetectorist;5488134]I have this posted on "today's finds" but found this thread as I was getting info on it.

    Here’s a few I’ve found

    I haven’t been detecting long but here’s a couple. I threw in a couple hammers and wedges to make a showing. They’re not much to look at. They may not be that old as far as know. I plan or giving them a bath to see if there’s anything left under the crud. Thanks for viewing.

    Yeah, clean them up, as you have some real nice axe heads! These axes/tools represent several types of jobs, that they were designed to do....
    Have fun getting info on them - then posts the results for us, will you? Thanks!

    Hello! I found this today in my backyard. It doesn't look very old to me, but I don't know much about axe heads. I do know that it's my first axe head, so I'm excited about it. It's 15mm x 9mm (6"x3.5") and weighs almost two pounds, which seems small, so maybe really it's a hatchet head. And from this post "WHAT TYPE OF AX HEAD IS THIS???", I'd guess that it was a Hoosier style axe head. If anyone has any thoughts, I'd love to hear your input.

    Thanks!
    Steven

    Hey, everyone. I got my hatchet/axe head cleaned up. Here are the new photos. I'm very happy with cleaning results (vinegar and scrubbing) but I sadly don't see any makers marks on it. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I wonder if it's modern or a bit older. Thank you!
