Not sure.  Looks like there may have been a rubber head on the other side?  The mushrooming on the other face kind of looks like it might have been a striking tool.  It's interesting if anything.  Hope someone else has seen one.  I'm curious too.

I agree. Looks like it might of had a rubber or plastic face. Like   http://www.mcmaster.com/#nonmarring-hammers/=10ee1jr

I have the exact same hammer or struck tool. I just spent about 15 minutes looking for it because it looks just like that one and I want to post a pic. Couldn't find it. I've come to the same conclusion as the others. That it once had a rubber or plastic bulb around the small end.

Ok, can I shape metal with it? I would like to make it a rounding hammer

It's most likely a tough, medium carbon steel so I don't see why you couldn't use it to forge hot steel with. Do you plan to grind it, or forge it to shape? Either way, you'll benefit from a good normalization cycle and might as well re harden and temper it.

Probably dress the face and use it as is, I don't want to mess with the handle as I really like the way it feels

Found it. It was with my other heads that are going to be re forged into something. Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20151226_125804.jpg, Views: 25, Size: 2.89 MB

So it's a hammer that was designed to be used on split rims on tractor trailers and it did have a rubber mallet to it. Thanks to old timers at junk stores
