Looks more like a hammer and a hoe or mattock to me. Wikipeditor 01:55, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I think you're right; FotW says it's a hammer and hoe. Wonder if anywhere does use the hammer and pick - hmm, it's on the Colorado state seal if that counts. –EdC 03:13, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
I think I only know it from German train schedules where it probably meant "on working days". Wikipeditor 02:28, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Removed references to this, and in general can't seem to find support for the Communist meaning, other than a semblance to the hammer and sickle.Morgan Riley (talk) 16:52, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

It would probably be better to rename this article mining symbol because there appears to be different symbols for mining. I have seen some that use two pickaxes instead of a hammer and a chisel on a handle. Also, "mining symbol" is a more basic term. Volcanoguy 13:43, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
