Large iron anchor with piece of chain. 200 lb (+/-), 92" end to end, flukes 50" end to end and 12" wide, shank 77" long and 2-1/2" to 3" in diameter, chain piece 10" x 7". A very large ship's anchor (first we have ever offered), impressively intact (missing half of the top ring only), with full crown and flukes at bottom, that part curiously cocooned in grayish encrustation (loaded with big shells), the shank mostly exposed iron (rusty but stable), not professionally conserved but very solid and an awesome display for your front yard! Recovered from: Unidentified 1820s wreck in the western Atlantic
