ID:	1514425I’m looking for someone to give me some information on this old spike that was given to me. Im told that it came out of a plank found off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. I believe it is brass. I’m wondering how old it is, value and who would have used these. One of the coolest items I’ve ever had. Thanks.

    1st - Welcome Aboard Adamhad! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forums: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country).
    2nd - I moved this thread from New Member Introduction over to Forum: What Is It? for more exposure.

    UM - which spike?
    considering you have a nice collection of spikes that appear to be identified, you may be better versed on the item than many of us - IMO

    Thanks for moving my post to the proper spot. I appreciate that. I live in Nova Scotia 25 minutes from Oak Island. As for the spikes in the picture it’s very basic info on the block of wood. I would love to know more about them so hopefully some expert opinions come along and write something. Thank you.

    I took the liberty of turning your photo over. Here is a link that might help you. It says bronze nails have been used for thousands of years. Ships Fastenings | Maritime Archaeology

    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    I guess there’s no way to truly date the spike if they’ve been around that long.

    Yes, This Spike...Is an 18th Century Wrought Iron Nail...One used to Nail Down the Ship's Planking.

    The 18th Century Freemasons brought all the "Disposable Spanish and English Ships to Oak Island to unload their Treasure and then Dismantled them in the Swamp.

    Wait until they locate the "Anchor" of the HMS.., Sterling Castle!~

    Ship Spike Help

    Hello from Gloucester, Mass. That spike looks similar to this one: http://schooneryankee.com/our-mandate/
    LOTS of vessels and thousands of men went down on the Grand Banks.
    Was the plank brought up in a dragger net or something?

    I'm not trying to make any connection to Oak Island as there isn't any. Just looking for as much info as possible and I certainly appreciate all that has been given. Thanks Jude for the info. The plank washed up on shore is what I'm told.
