(E + F) Pair of round poll tomahawks from Fort Ticonderoga mortar pit where the British camped before the French siege of 1757. French and Indian War. These appear to be the type issued to British quasi military units, like Roger's Rangers and their Indian allies. Both appear to have same maker mark which is interesting as they may have come from same cask when issued out. See labels on box and photo/map of exact spot where dug in mortar pit. One axe still has wood in eye. Relic condition as dug. Honest French & Indian War axe heads with provenance. Another one was dug at same site that has a British Broad Arrow mark. DRG
