A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. It may have been obtained by the Schwatka expedition from the Inuit on the Hayes River and is likely to be an eyebolt shackle. There is a Royal Naval Museum, Greenwich number (1) painted on in white. It may have come from the vessel that sank near the shore at Grant Point. Schwatka was told by the Inuit of the Adelaide Peninsula that they had found the ship abandoned except for the body of a European. The Inuit removed anything useful and the vessel subsequently sank. They also reported finding the footprints of the four last crew members on the shore.
