Default Hammer face repairs

Hi Group,

I got a couple of old sheet metal hammers at a garage sale yesterday and the faces have been used to drive nails and general abuse as a hammer not for sheet metal is my guess.
To resurface the faces, those of you that have done this, what is the preferred method and do you try to keep a certain profile of what is there or make it what you see it as.

These are the hammers in question $5 ea. I've got a 2x72 belt sander, I have grinders, flap wheels, sand paper, and of course hand files, but the heads seem to be a bit hardened as the file doesn't do much at first try.

Look forward to any advice that you can provide.

Mr fixit
