Hello to all

First post, found this old nail today using a mine lab. Few inches down in a washed out sand dune. I’m on the treasure coast of Florida, but this was not particularly close to any of the 1715 wrecks. Found it next to bathtub beach in Stuart FL. Anyone have any insight into it? Also found a 1955 to 1963 seven up bottle in the washed out dune.

Thanks

I'm not so sure those are file marks.....looks like graining in the material, often seen in forged iron. What is it made of, is it ferrous ?
