    Seeing as where you are located (Baltimore) I will venture it might be the blade of an oyster shucking knife.

    Currently in Mexico, item was dug in the central state of Jalisco
    Here is a pic of some of the items that were dug along side with the piece
    I would say the most modern will be the military buttons and should
    date 1830-1840s, the oldest piece would be a 1/4 real my friend dug
    dated 1759.

    What ever it is it would have been in a handle, not a shaft.

    If not an oyster shucking knife, then maybe an animal skinning knife.

    I think you may have found an arrow head.

    I passed by that place twice last week. Ain't nothing there, but one old mine shaft headframe that I saw. I believe it's an arrowhead made from an iron strap that were used on the old wooden barrels as aarc demonstrated. I read in a book where a indian scout described a battle where he got shot in the hip buy an arrow with an iron arrowhead and that the native Americans would utilize discarded scraps of iron to make arrowheads.
