Slender, solid metal object has a flattish, slightly domeed nail head top. The cylindrical shaft tapers to a point that has been broken away. The object is pierced by a bore between 9.0 and 9.5 cm. below the head. The bore is closed with corrosion but it appears to be reinforced on either side by a collar.
