Auld & Conger Slate Pick Hammer
This is a nice rare maker slater's pick hammer marked "AULD & CONGER CLEVELAND O.". It is 11.5" long x 9.5" wide. It has a leather handle with a brass ferrule and brass cap nut, constructed with leather washers can be adjusted with the brass nut on the end if needed. The pick end looks good very little wear, we do note a former owner's marks (three groove on the main hammer shaft). The hammer end has only minor edge dings. The puller feature is solid with almost no wear. Overall a very nice hard to find antique tool by this maker, who was in business until the 1930's.
