Good guesses, but none correct, so far.

Early era reloading tool.  Small end is neck expander, large end is primer seating hammer, with case lengths marked on the tool.  It originally came with a set of ear plugs.

I suppose we are all "guessed out".  it's a locomotive inspector's hammer. The hammer head was made to check for defects on a steam locomotive, including lateral clearance of driving wheels and engine and trailing trucks, drive-wheel flange height, grab-iron and end-handhold clearance, flat and shell spots on wheels, and coupler contour. It was also useful for checking for loose nuts and metal thicknesses.
