"Vintage Machinery" entry for The Stanley Works
Description:
One piece casting with the handle hollowed with a large surface but with little material and coated to give it a rust proof surface. The casting is treated, "bit" with acid and then tinned or japanned.

Incorporated by Stanley as their No 4 Improved Tack Hammer, No 5 Saddler's Hammer, No 6 Tack Hammer and No 12 Tack Hammer.

A known example of the No 12 style is marked with just this patent & R. Boeklen's Aug. 28, 1860 magnetic head patent 29,760. John Walter indicates that the No 12 was not marked with the Stanley name.
