This is a new very correct and very high quality axe head hinge bracket. This is a stock bracket on the Ford GPW and is Hand “F” stamped like the early originals. Their purpose was to hold the axe head in the body mounted sheath. (of course with the help of a strap) These are almost always missing the loop part of the bracket or have rusted off the body. These are proudly made in the USA. Since they are hand stamped there are imperfections just like the originals.
