So far this is the only known Bessemer and Lake Erie Hubbard Nail found.

It was almost falling out of the pole it was in when I got it. Unfortunately, the exact location is something I cannot seem to remember exactly. The way Google maps shows the area and the way I remember finding the nail do not coincide. It was somewhere on the way (on back roads) to Grove City, PA

I do not own this one anymore since I was contacted by a B&LE RR collector when he saw a pic of this nail on a website. It was hard to let go of it, but it belongs in a specialist's collection. So we made a great trade.
