Slender, solid cylindrical object has a flat nail head at one end and a rounded point at the other. The diameter of the shaft remains constant from the head to the bore midway down the length of the shaft. Below the bore at 9.5 cm. to 10 cm., the shaft tapers to the point. The bore is clear of corrosion and appears to be supported by a collar.
