definitely not a mystery object...

Post by HolzHammer » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:26 pm

Afternoon All!
You guys and girls have probably been digging these since you were knee high to a Henry II short cross penny but its a first for me... something to do with seals..?
Herts, cut barley stubble quite deep about 14" - a bit kinky but generally nice condition- about 75mm - I can't really make anything out on the end but there are very faintly raised lines and bumps.
Any Knowledge gratefully accepted and much appreciated.
All the B
Alexander

Coat hook
I have never been convinced by the coat hook ID for these things. They turn up in incredible numbers and I can't understand why there would be so many coat hooks needed. In my opinion they are generally also a bit light for coat hooks.

I suspect that they are probably general purpose hooks from carts or farm machinery or something like that. ::g

They may have had other uses, but the numerous examples I've found are all very similar (as the one shown in this thread is) to the coat hook pictured below, which is in my hallway. The house dates to the early 1800s.
