The bundle is secured around to a long rod, also square in section, and itself tapering to a point. The surface of the bundle appears to be finished or painted black and has the number "8" stamped on one of the rods. The numbers "6" have been stamped on each of the square hoops,"6" on each face of the bundles and "1" on the square section of the tapering rod. Fifth in a series of seven models (SLR1931 and SLR2874-SLR2879) showing how an anchor is formed, presented by Mr Tucker, 1829.
