17th century. 28” length, cane shaft with carved wood nock secured with lashing through the fletching area. No fletching remaining as always encountered. Iron armor piercing point, 4 1/4” long swelling from the shaft to faceted conical armor piercing point. Decorative brass, copper and pewter bands at the seat with the shaft. Untouched arsenal condition. Fired from fort or palace ramparts, the massive head provided additional inertia for armor piercing as well as rendering the arrow useless for returning fire from the ground. Rare.
