19th century, probably pre-contact as there is no evidence of use of a metal blade. 55 ¼” length. Cane haft with scraped lines to one segment, probably owner’s identification. Split cane wrapped socket and tapered palm wood point with a series of spines, cactus or porcupine, lashed and encased in dried sap. About half of the spines remaining. These were replaceable and the tip had to be rebuilt after every successful use as the spear could not be withdrawn without loss of the spines. Encrusted with substantial evidence of use.
