The comb was the only thing I had nearby for size comparison. The piece is roughly 2x2 and registers as iron, and it's pretty heavy for its size. I found it in an area where I think folks were busting rocks trying to find gold a long time ago. Although, clearly, this doesn't date to the 1800's like many of the things I've found.

It was right next to a huge slab of granite that I unearthed, and there was also a 2-foot-long iron spike right there, that I think they were using to bust open the rocks.

Was it part of a wedge? What the heck is the word above "Warning"?
