Saw this on an auction site, listed as "factory original handle."  
A recent thread discussed the double-headed adjustable wrenches I'd not seen before, and now I've not seen one of these in person!
I thought I'd contact the seller and ask if it was a left or right handed carpenter's hatchet.

Head is upside down, and I doubt the handle is original.

Nice tool though!

That's for when your hanging upside down I guess?.... That's a Plumb hatchet I don't have.

#3 for the head being upside-down. Must be for roofing from the inside.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Can you get us a peek at the end of the eye?  That ought to tell the tale. 

I had one like it, with the head on the other way round, but my handle had more curve to it.

Where the shoulder meets the head is very blunt, not tapered gradually like it should be. Another indicator the handle has been swapped...

Here's one from the interwebby:

Not sure if that's the original handle. Probably not, but the head's on right.

Well, I was originally going to post some snarky facetious comment about what would appear to be a pretty obvious backa$$ward hanging of a hatchet.  Perhaps some roofer or other tradesman decided to create this tool as a modification that fit their particular need for the job, or improvised not having a specific hatchet designed for roofing and made their own?  I guess if you were trying to lift some broken shingles/shakes for replacement, having the head reversed might be a novel solution to pry under the piece.

Oh well, to each their own.  Good news is unlike an electrocuted lantern with a hole drilled here and there for a cord, this could be restored pretty easily to standard issue!
