And I said, 'Why not? It's the truth! Why can't I say I'm a Beatles fan?' I used to get criticized for that.

I used a couple of the Protos as parts donors to repair some Plomb pebble ratchets

Good move.  Parts is parts.

It is about a 4 hour drive for me. I eventually get on I81 and then I think it is I86 or something in NY to Martin's. I live South of Easton PA not to far off the Delaware River.

And I live in Eastern Kansas not far off our Delaware River.  It fills Lake Perry where I reside.  But a long, long drive to NY.

There's a pattern of cabinetmaker's hammer called Warrington, with that same cross peen on one side, striking face on the other.  Some of the small ones get delicate (my eight ounce one is a sweet little thing), but I've never seen one this delicate before, so this may not be one of those.  Still, this looks like Alberto Giacometti's* Warrington hammer.

For those not familiar with Alberto Giacometti, this is one of his sculptures:

Maybe it's a Cross Peen Pin Hammer for carpenters driving small pins.  You would use the cross peen for starting a small pin or brad to avoid mashing your fingers.
