    Re: Value of an Anchor

    The value of an artifact is directly related to the amount of accurate data available about the item. Sometimes called, provenience, other times called pedigree.
    Without the paperwork a dog is just a mutt. With the papers the dog has lineage and pedigree and is worth a lot more.
    The more you can document.... the more paper you can produce from experts,( not just your opinions.) in the field of colonial anchors in the new world, the more bucks you can command. Location data is great but assumption, as to origin, is just speculation and has little value.
    All the authentic 17th. century Spanish colonial anchors that I have seen all had sharp pointed flukes.( about thirty anchors.) The anchors from other, non Spanish sites ( about sixty.) had palm shaped flukes like yours.
    That is, until you get to the mid to late 18th. century, then the Spanish seemed to adopt the palm shaped flukes. Some of those anchors were possibly purchases, swaps, or salvaged.
    I think you need to do more research on the origin of your anchor, in order to get that price up there where it is worthwhile to recover, preserve and properly document this artifact, then sell it to someone who can appreciate it's unique history and pedigree.
    Best of luck.

    Re: Value of an Anchor

    Of course at a glance all of those anchors look alike but from the angle of the ring, the flukes, and the amount of growth on it, it sure looks like one I dove on around 8 years ago. I have some pictures of it at home somewhere but they are not digital. I showed it to someone who then showed it to someone and then shortly afterward I couldnít find it and I always thought someone removed it but hoped it was just covered with sand. The one Iím talking about was in only around 12í of water, sitting jut outside of the reef on the sand off of Palm Beach County and pointed out to sea to the SE. I sure hope you did a good job of preserving it because I would have much rather it would have been left where it was for everyone to enjoy and not rot in someones backyard.

    Interesting, Nyse. You found it? Or did you get it from someone who did? It needs to be thrown in a pond or some water asap, lest it deteriorate quickly.

    I pulled up some stuff when younger, and learned that mom would always throw it out of the garage. When you grew up, wife would take on that duty.

    Got to have a plan, and think it through carefully. Good preservation costs money and time.

    Lots of iron cannon disentegrated into rust over the years.

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    often the real value of a ships anchor is in helping to find where a shipwreck site is ...in bad weather anchors are often let go to keep a ship off the rocks and reefs ..as the storm pushes the ship the anchor will bite in and its eye will point in the direction in which its being pushed --once you find a anchor on the bottom looking in the direction the eye is pointing can often lead to the wreck on nearby reefs or rccks or shallow water area
