Description:
The patent is for a magnetic tack hammer. The magnet could be a separate piece for one head, or the whole head; the specifications mention coating all but the ends of the head with non-conducting material. A known example is marked with this patent date in combination with the Dec. 10, 1867 date corresponding to Thomas Conklin's patent for a one-piece hollow handled hammer (pat. no 71,986). The Conklin patent was used in several tack hammers produced by Stanley.

Boeklen & G.W. Schramm received another hammer patent mentioning a magnetic tack face on Nov. 4, 1862 (Pat. no. 36829).
