Back in December Marlow posted a photo of a Leeper nut tool that I never knew existed. Six months later a second one surfaced and I was able to get it for the museum. pre 1980s for sure probably Ed Leepers first nut tool he created.

Marlow - yesterday I received these awesome Gerry pitons. I am totally psyched to have these wonderful antiques! Thank you so much Marlow for your generosity! Also thanks Steve Grossman for the postal bump to get them to the museum.

I am tempted to call this a leaf piton. What say you?
this might do pretty well in a vert placement, I dare say.

I don't know anything, but on the last one is written "Made in Ukrania".

 thebravecowboy - The top piton has the same eye as this 1960s Japanese piton I got from Jim Bridwell. I was thinking that maybe that small pin was formed from a broken piton, but it looks like it was made to be like a RURP. The second photo are you sure the channel is sawed off, or maybe the edge was pounded down with a hammer? The third photo is a beautiful titanium Ushba piton from Russia, c.2000.

The "G" on that horizontal pretty much conforms it that Gerry used that stamp all along.

Don't forget that the great Jerry Gallwas made his own pins and might have stamped them with a "G."

Not a mystery as such, but this is bigly securing a farmer's gate on the Roman Wall in Northumberland, it's beautiful, we like it a lot and it seems no Scots have passed through since this beautiful wall was built...
