    Wow, great find! Thank you for using the coins as size references in your photos. Did you find this using a metal detector or did you spot it with you eye?

    Looks to be.Forged and hammered from 'square stock' into shape.(Depending on soil & water conditions it was found in) I would 'guess ' maybe 2-3 hundred years old. Diffidently worth checking that area further....Good luck !

    I agree with RTR. Vintage barn door or shed hook.

    Gate/barn or anything similar hook. Probably blacksmith forged. Nice find.

    It is small for a hoof pick but it has the look.
