These are three caplock hammers that were in the bucket with the other old Lepley gun parts in Southampton Township, Somerset County PA; note that not all have been fitted to a lock. The gunshop was located about 1.7 miles west of the Bedford County line, so I guess it's not surprising that the middle hammer resembles the style of a Bedford County hammer.

The next two photos highlight details of the first hammer that is in the first photo above.

The next set of photos documents the details of the second hammer that is in the first photo above. Note the lateral curve, which isn't obvious when viewing a hammer like this on a rifle.

The next two photos highlight details of the third hammer (a blank) that is in the first photo above.
