1 1/2" Hollow Punch

1750-1820
Origin: England or America
OL: 3 1/2"
Iron / steel
Gift of Judith and William McMillen
Acc. No. 2012-43
1 1/2" hollow punch
Label:This seemingly simple tool served two purposes; it could be used to punch out 1 1/2" discs of tin, or it could be used to cut a 1 1/2" hole in a piece of tin. Either way, using this tool took muscle, as evidenced by the extreme "mushrooming" of the striking surface, indicative of many heavy blows from a sledge hammer.
