Revolutionary War Era, large size hand-made iron anti-personnel and anti-horse metal caltrop (spike) weapon. Each individual spike measures about 1.5". Caltrops were small antipersonnel and anti-horse weapons with 4 sharpened spikes that would be scatted on roads or trails and in stream beds to puncture boots or hooves and disable the victim. These were designed with the 4 spikes so there was always one pointing up. Similar to one pictured on page 57 of "Collector's Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution" by George Neumann and Frank Kravic, 1977. The iron surface has a nice patina from age. A sharp and impressive example. Fine condition.
