Stamp is weak, because of the slight curvature of the head where the marking was made. The wood handle measures 10 long.The steel head is 4 long and the face is square, being slightly less thick than it is wide. The steel straps that help secure the head to the handle are wide and extend 1¾ down from the head. The handle has a 5/16 counter-bored hole centered up from the butt. The leather thong or strap is no longer with the hammer.
There is no marking on the butt of the handle. The handle retains about 60% of its original olive-green paint. The head retains 35-40% of its matching paint on the top and bottom; if there was any finish on the sides of the head, it is no longer present.

Honestly, I just dont want you to be disappointed by missing out on the item because you waited too long to pay for it; that has happened to too many buyers. That's a fair policy for both of us.
