For an almost identical example see Fig. 70 on page 152 of "Indian Tomahawks & Frontiersmen Belt Axes" by Daniel D. Hartzler & James A. Knowles. The large head measures about 8 3/4" overall. The crescent cutting edge measures 3 5/16". The left side of the blade is stamped deeply with a rooster over "BE", a sun-in-splendor, a crescent moon with face and five stars. The rings on the stem, the chevron, the molding and the outline of the blade are English in style. The example shown in the book has the same initials and decoration and was acquired from a Chippewa chief on Manatolin Island, Ontario in 1887. The haft on the example in the book is also identical in size and style to the original haft on this example. This hickory haft measures 22 1/2". CONDITION: Head is in very good condition with a mostly brown patina. Stamped designs are excellent and clearly visible. Original haft is dry and head is loose due to shrinkage. A very attractive and original tomahawk. DMG
