Complete stock (wood) of a flintlock pistol, very rare. 354 grams; 20" long. Flintlock pistols from shipwrecks are not unknown; but almost always they are left as coral conglomerates, as the steel parts rust away and the wood parts are eaten by teredo worms. That is why this intact wooden stock, very recognizable in shape and size and also rather hard from conservation, is so rare. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, sunk off the east coast of Florida
