Ball pein hammer

I've already got more than enough ball pein hammers, but I couldn't resist picking up this 10-ounce one last week.  It's the most elegant example I've ever seen.  I love the enlongated shape of the ball, and the concentric grooves as a decorative touch on both the ball and the poll.  It's a pity that most old hammers like this one have no maker's marks on them.
