Old Axe Head

I found this axe head while I was out shed hunting last weekend. It looks pretty weathered. Any idea how old it might be?

Thanks.

I really don't know, but it looks old. I'd guess somewhere in the 1800s.

It's kind of unusual looking. It's thinner than most.

A history of PA axe manufacturing, including a photo of some different types of axes, is here:
