    Try a site like postimage.org maybe. Upload your pics to the host than copy, share here

    Alright! Excellent

    From what I can tell.
    A beauty pole, Collins in a box Jersey...I don't see or handle many lugged axes but that's my best guess this morning:thumbsup:

    I saw that exact diagram for axe heads! I’m thinking it is a Jersey. I picked it up at a garage sale for next to nothing. It has 32 stamped on the opposite side. Any guesses on that?

    The large 3=lbs and the small 2 represents quarter pounds. So #3-1/2.
    A 3 with a small 3 would equal #3-3/4. Etc. Nice find! Looks to be a newer one but i have some newer Collins and they are pretty decent. And yours is in excellent shape! Edit; and for what its worth i use imgur for pics. Once i figured out how to use it it's fairly fast and easy.

    The handle is in fairly good shape. It might need to be set better because it’s coming loose. I’m not sure if I should go with a new handle or fix the current handle

    I would make every attempt to reuse and rehang with the original if that is what you think you have.
    New replacements off the rack are not as pleasing and good ones few and far without a massive man(handle)hunt at times:thumbsup::cool:

    Can you show a few pics of axe and handle?

    I feel like I just hit the jackpot. I hadn’t seen this till now! I believe this may be the original handle!

    And for everyone’s interest, I have cleaned the head up quite a bit from where it was at. I used WD-40, steel wool, and a lot of elbow grease ha
