Main Street - 4 Ounce Ball Pien Hammer

I found this ball pien hammer on Main Street.  I had seen it for several weeks, but the opportunity never presented itself to stop and pick it up.  The one thing that can always be counted on when it comes to main street is bad traffic,  Eventually the back up hits everyone. On August 19th., the inevitable happened and I was able to stop and pick up the hammer without stopping traffic or getting myself killed.

The ball pien hammer was located on the inside shoulder of the north bound side of Main street about 2 miles from the 610/Main Street intersection.  Without the traffic back up I would have never even considered trying to obtain this tool.

Although not obvious from the photo the hammer is small.  The head is 3 or 4 ounces and the handle is roughly 8 inches long.  There are no obvious markings on the hammer so I conclude it is a generic mass produced hammer. The hammer head is in great shape.  There are no real nicks or cuts.  The handle, as is obvious from the photo, is broken.  I will eventually replace the handle, but I am in no hurry since I have little need for a ball pien hammer at this time.
