Iron belaying pin, professionally conserved. Over 4 lb, 14½" long and up to 2" in diameter. Shaped like a billy club (or a dagger with rod instead of blade), this well-preserved object was used to fasten ropes temporarily on board ships, its surfaces striated from oxidation (which tends to expose the original metal flow), glossy dark brown in color. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida.
