Today's Beach Finds And Some ID Help Please

Post by fishy » Fri Dec 02, 2011 6:40 pm

Headed to the beach to see what I could find today.
A little disappointed because the big tides have added lots of material to the beach so good hunting areas were few.
Still had some great finds tho :)

My finds today.

This is now the shiniest thing in my collection.
A big copper nail? I guess used in boat building. Any more info would be great.

This is my interesting item of the day.

No idea what it is so any help or thoughts would be great. Its made of brass and I have spent an hour so far removing encrusted beach. It has a number 7 on the end of the thread.

Your brass item is the base of a 2inch mortar. It is where the fin screwed into the main body of the mortar.
