I Forge Iron

Making Nails/Selling Nails

Recommended Posts

How much did hand forged nails sell for?

I was asked that question while at the forge at the historical society................

I informed the lady that I had read much about nail making, but never had seen a price.

I also stated, that it would depend upon the size of the nail, if it was made from new iron stock or used and that it would most likley be a barter for soemthiong else in return. Not to mention the time frame and the location of the smith selling/making the nails. I take it she meant the 1700 to late 1800's and in Ohio (?????)

How much did nails sell for?????
