This one on the way as of today. Can't wait to get it, clean it up and
see how it fires. :)

Not sure exactly what manufacturer it is, but I've been acquiring some
relic pieces lately for mounting in shadow boxes. Once the rust is stabilized
this one should look good in the group …or maybe even singly in a small frame.

A little oil and some 0000 steel wool and maybe a little buffing action and that thing will be pretty. If its a little tight, some heat should loosen it right up and Naval Jelly will handle any stubborn bluing that remains so you can make it look NIB.

Interesting that the hammer was cocked when lost. Suggesting a perilous situation. Where was it found?

My guess would be in a dumpster in New Orleans.

I like it just the way it is.
You might be able to get some of the loose scale off it, but who knows where the rust ends and the metal begins.
I really do like to see these archaeological finds. They prove something......
