Hults Bruk – Hatchet Pattern – Pre 1988

Axe handle is 24 inches, head markings are HB in circle w/ arrow… opposite side is 1.0 over 2 1/4.
See photos below. Can you date the axe and was my purchase of $45 at auction a good deal?

    This maker’s mark stamp was discontinued in 1988, so the axe is at least 30-years old. The style of font on the weights looks a bit like the one used in the 1970s, so it could be as old as 40-50 years. Hard to tell exactly. I believe this one is a Yankee pattern. This axe looks like it’s in really good shape for the age.
