I don't know Steve, why the double duplicate ends?

Case one snaps off while you are out riding the fence line.    Maybe this was made before the "Fencing Pliers" came out?     Besides, made a good self-defense weapon....:ph34r:

 

After all, these are just...pliers..

Utica   1932 - 10-1/4"    From Utica NY, USA    Dad's pliers.     The "hook " was more for digging into a post..

Staple puller, hammer, two sizes of wrenches, two sizes of wire cutters.   Cowboy all-in-one tool.   Wrench part was also to splice wires together.

Don't forget the wire twisters at the bottom, we had several of those for fixing the fences, handy tool.

 

My first thought was a staple puller too. I remember that they used a lot of malleable iron staples in he wooden wagons and horse drawn equipment made out of oak. They were large staples and I was thinking maybe this hammer was to remove them for repairs.
