17th-18th century. 28" length. Finely made. Cane shaft with separate wood nock. The nock socket and additional segment below with fine lacquered sinew wrap in good preservation. Large iron head of octagonal section and elongated bullet from. The shaft behind with additional wrap to compensate for the size. Head bright and excellent. Its weight allowed it to be shot down from a fortification wall with devastating impact, yet precluded it being picked up and fired back at the higher position.
