There is no deformation to the back of it with the butt being perfectly flat with nice distinct edges. If anybody has any ideas let me know. I would love to be able to date this. The pictures here are before electrolysis, I'll post some later after she's cleaned up.
    If yr still around & FWIW , IMO your AX was on the verge of breaking , I have a couple like that , 1 is bent worse than the one pictured .

    Ill bet OSHA Told them they could not use a damaged tool .

    Found in woods near Charleston, SC along with a lock dated 1830/ 1837 made in England. Wondering why it would have two holes for handles. One located directly behind axe head and other is offset to the side. Any ideas?

    Interesting! I'm thinking not an ax but I don't know much about them. Sure looks like an ax.

    Very odd.
    Maybe another picture of the top end, would help us figure the purpose, the use of this tool....
    Thanks!
