Rare, Old, Greene, Tweed & Co. BASA Hammer + New Faces

Up for auction is a rare, old No. 2 BASA hammer manufactured by Greene, Tweed & Co. Historical data on Greene, Tweed & Co. indicate that this hammer was probably manufactured in the very early 1900's and was the first model split-head rawhide hammer. This wonderful old hammer comes with two sets of NIB faces, one rawhide and one hard rubber?(see photo). The split in the handle(see photo) has been t a long, long time and does not affect the function of the hammer. The handle is solid, with no vibration or chatter from the split. As you can see from the old faces, this hammer has given years of hard, faithful service (some of it very recent). It needs a good, new home.
