This axe is from William Mathew Steadman, Devon, England. 42nd Light Infantry, war of 1812.
The axe has been passed down directly through the family. And there is full provenance upon request. There is some play of about 1/4 where the handle meets the. Axe head - I presume from the wood shrinking over so much time, and. Some very small nicks in the blade edge.
There are two headstamps that are faint, but still very much visible. Consisting of a half moon face with a cluster of 6 crude stars apromixately. A half an inch from the moon face.
