    Weird Square Nail

    I know it's just a square nail, but I've never seen one that looks like this. Anyone know what it was used for? It's 2 inches long.

    If it wasn't made with that head on purpose, it might have been a reused nail that was burned out of something else. therefore annealed and the head flattened when reused. But sometimes they made nails specifically for a purpose. Good luck figuring it out

    I was thinking "boat nail" or "rose head nail"

    Hand wrought but the smith put extra "flourish" on it by fattening the sides instead of a four or five petal "rose" head.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
