Champion Hatchet, possibly Kelly made? Not sure. Hope someone could enlighten me on this one. Very well made and really nice patina.

Kelly Flint Edge. Good axe, little bit hard to find with this stamp. Stamped with this man forging an axe on the back and True Temper Kelly Works on the front.
P1010067.JPG
Plumb Champion axe. Made to commemorate Peter McLaren (Melbourne Australia) as a champion wood chopper. Austalian made Plumbs have a star stamped onto the back of the head, and are less valuable than ones not stamped with a star. A price difference from $100 plus for an Australian to $300 - $600 for an American made with no star stamp.

True Temper Kelly Jersey Felling Axe. Great axe for using, very well hardened bit and grooved eye for extra handle retention. Kelly Perfects were some of the best axes Kelly made. $100 range for a good one with a handle.

yeah they are all going on the bay next couple of weeks or so. Thinking about puttin a Stanley 4 square on there (its ROUGH though), a Binghams Best Brand from Cleveland Ohio (have two of these, almost exactly the same condition), a Norlund "tomahawk" axe.

Those guys are into axes right now, looks like that's where the money is! I'll get some pics. Have some really really neat Keen Kutters that are staying in the Kollection. One with a stamp of geese and another with a stamp of a dog. These bring pretty nice money but are just too purdy to sell ::dang:: I will get some pics of these, as they are the best. Another good one is an original marbles safety axe, I'll grab a pic of this too.

Very nice head, PigStiker. It does look to be unused. Unsharpened for sure.

I really enjoyed looking at the axes and hatchets that have been posted in this thread. I only have a few. Two are Norlund hatchets, two are Norlund axes and one is a fireman's axe head dated 1929. I beleive the Norlund pieces were made in the late 1970's but they have a nice shape.

moore u might do well with that very strange fireman axe on the bay if u are looking to sell. that is really unusual. I've gotten 350 for a Keen Kutter fireman.

pig sticker, i like the boyscout. have the same one but in much much rougher condition. im jealous
