Large hardwood fid, intact. 173 grams, 7-3/4" long and 1-1/4" widest diameter. This long, cigar-shaped piece of wood with pointed ends was used to separate knots in ropes, and they are rarely found intact from wrecks, as wood does not usually survive rot and worms. Pedigreed to the Marty Meylach collection. Recovered from:Spanish 1733 Fleet, Florida Keys
