    Iron Spike Found near Gardiner, Montana

    I found this iron spike near Gardiner, Montana on the side of a hill leading down to the river about 50 yards from the water. It was stuck up under a scrub brush and I could find no other items near this spike. Possibly unrelated, but I found a rock nearby with two holes bored/chiseled all the way through the rock.

    Looks like a chisel. It has had many a hammer take a whack on it.

    Yes it has...to the point where pieces have chipped off the perimeter. Would the design and shape and pitted/gouged fabrication of the spike provide an indication of its age?

    Yes it does. The holes were about 1/4" to 3/8" larger than the chisel.

    Sweet. I wondered why the pointed end was flared out. Any indication of approximate time frame for fabrication?
