    Did I find a civil war tent spike? I have no idea

    Do you guys have any idea what this could be? Google images is leaning towards an old tent spike. What do you think?

    I believe most CW era tent stakes were made of wood.

    That said, you could have a picket pin.

    Post some better pics of the 'top'.

    I'm thinking this is wagon related hardware, possibly a pin to hold the side or back in place
    Of course I'm not a CW guy, I'll leave that up to the experts here... like TheCannonballGuy.
