SOLD: April 09, 2021 THREE BELL SYSTEM MARKED TOOLS including a lineman's hatchet, a screwdriver and a hammer for driving in climbing posts. All are marked with the "Bell System" name. Those who wonder how so many tools belonging to a corporate entity found their way into private collections may not be aware of the Anti-Trust litigation that ordered each employee of what was then called "Ma Bell" to place a tool of his choice in his lunch box each night when leaving work as punishment to the monopolistic behemoth for that employed them. Now you know.
