Original U.S. Military hatchet stamped on one side "U.S. / PLUMB 1944". Hatchet head shows good use but remains solid and clean.

Original wood handle retains traces of original olive drab paint. No cracks or gouges.

Hatchet measures approximately 16" long overall; head measures about 5-1/4" x 3-1/2"; wood handle alone is about 13-1/2" long.

Comes with earlier, WW1-era canvas cover that is in excellent condition. This earlier type utilizes a closing strap and "buckle" instead of the WW2-era snap. Belt hooks attached to the back. Marked "H&P / 11-18". Very nice.

In 1869, Fayette R. Plumb entered a partnership with Jonathan Yerkes, an established hammer manufacturer operating in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia. Shortly thereafter, a new facility was built in the Bridesburg neighborhood, operating as Yerkes & Plumb. The firm was one of the first in the United States to use cast steel to manufacture tools. Yerkes retired in April 1886, and Plumb bought out Yerkes' interest in the company. By 1888, the company was operating solely under the Plumb name.  [ad] [ph:L]
