This polearm is photographed and described on page 203 of "Swords & Blades of the American Revolution" by George Neumann as plate 37.PA. Short axe head measures 3 - 5/8" across relatively flat edge. Hooked spike (reminiscent of a bec de corbin) measures approximately 3 - 7/8", central spike measures 6 - 7/8" to base. Left side of head crudely inscribed "BENNINGDON 1745. Right side inscribed just "1745" under central spike. Head measures approximately 12" from tip to seams for straps. Haft a clear replacement and affixed with flat head screws. Marked on right strap "P / 10", and left side of axe head '"59 (?)", last digit illegible; likely museum numbers. CONDITION: Very good, and lightly cleaned in typical European fashion over old oxidation with bright metal visible. Normal delamination from hand forging throughout. Some bumps and slight rolling to edges. This is a good example of a pre-War American polearm. PROVENANCE: Dr. John K. Lattimer collection. EMW
