It sure is beautiful but color me skeptical.  Why would a house carpenter carry
around a half dozen axe handles and the pattern to make them to each of his
jobs?   This is true of several other tools in there.   The brand-new slate nail
cutter had a label "since 1853”, But every DR Barton chisel has “1832” on it
even though they were made into the 1920’s.  So the timing is questionable and
the tool content is questionable, but, it is a very nice collection of tools.
