This old steel rusty "J" hook anchor was used to hold down railroad rails. It is very heavy almost 3 lbs. Measures 8" long x 3 1/4" across x 1 1/4"wide. It would be ideal for making a junk garden sign using rusty junk parts. An example would be JOY or perhaps initials of the gardener etc. Or in junk welding projects like junk sculpting.
