Lot of 5 curved steel needles. 3.2 to 4.1 grams and 5" each. As pictured on p. 155 of Galleon Alley by Bob "Frogfoot" Weller, these curved needles were either used for surgical purposes or for sailmaking, and as thin steel relics it is remarkable that they are so well preserved, with points still sharp. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida. With Real Eight Co. certificate.
