1760-80's Hand-Forged Wrought Iron Spontoon Head
c. 1760-80's French & Indian War to American Revolutionary War Era, Hand-Forged Wrought Iron Spontoon / Spear Head, Very Fine.
An original, high quality, military use Spontoon / Spear Head which measures approximately 9.5" long and 2" wide with its original extension for attachment to a pole. This example is likely from around the American Revolution time period, perhaps earlier. Handmade out of forged iron, it is in very nice original overall condition having no cracks in metal. The deep rich chocolate-brown patina is impressive. Excellent "museum" quality for any French & Indian War to American Revolutionary War Era period militaria display.
