Cool!!!! Congrats!!!!View attachment 2018893 hello. I found this anchor on George’s Banks about 40 years ago. It is 93 inches long and 49 inches wide. I believe it weighs around 350 - 450 pounds. I believe it is quite old. Can anyone help me date the anchor and if possible what it could be worth. Thanks in advance!! Steve
Thank you very muchCool find !
I was a Shipwreck diver for over 25 years - I brought up a few Anchors that looked similar to yours.
Yes, it's old - I'd guess 1800's or possibly even 1700's.
You could send a few photo's to a Maritime Museum for age verification.
We soaked salt water - rusted Iron objects in a Lye Bath for six months to a year and then painted them with a brush.
This process stops or at least slows down any future deterioration of the piece.
