Rare example in excellent preservation and showing practically no wear. 4 ¾” height of characteristic uniformly wide section with rudimentary calkins. 4-4 nail holes with one nail remaining. Exceptional preservation with clear wrought iron patterning, particularly to the back which also shows its hammer finish. The tip slightly worn only. These typically are worn into the nearest nail holes, indicating that this one was near new when it was lost. It almost certainly was buried with a war horse killed in battle. At the time, only war horses were shod. Professionally conserved. About as good as they get!
