County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy handmade nail of unknown date. The nail has a large sub-circular flat head from the nominal centre of which springs an integral square sectioned tapering prong. The flat head is set at an angle of approximately 25 degrees to the horizontal. The oblique angle appears to be by design and not the result of damage and this coupled with the copper alloy manufacture may suggest a specialist purpose such as ship building or a non-spark application. The nail has an even dark green patina indicative of age, and as a handmade example it would predate the industrial revolution.
