    hand forged item, pointed spike at both ends (so I don't think it's a nail), found in the vicinity of a 1760's era house in Pennsylvania. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the ideas! One end comes to a point, the other tapers off and then bows out again before coming to a point. Almost looks like ( with some imagination) a duck's head in effigy...

    I believe that may be a tool used by a dentist, or perhaps a family doctor or veterinarian. Perhaps you can research the house and see if a medical professional lived there. If you do a google image search for "antique dental instruments" you'll see quite a few tools which look similar.

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
    by the author.
