Lead hammers are used as "dead blow" hammers because they don't bounce back. They also don't mar or scratch delicate surfaces. Unfortunately they tend to rub off bits of highly toxic lead dust and should really not be used anymore. A better alternative is a hammer with a hollow head filled with steel shot.
This hammer came from an Amish auction: Click the Source link for a story about the auction.
