Iron cannon pin-ring. 720 grams, about 6-1/2" long and 4" in diameter. Cannons in carriages on board ships were tied to the bulkhead by means of pin-rings like this one to prevent them from rolling all over the deck, this specimen rusted and unconserved but still intact, the pin part encrusted to the ring part with white coral. Recovered from: 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
