How old are they?

In reply to Square Nails by Charley Blanco on October 25th, 2002 12:00 PM [Go to top of thread]

I am restoring a house in Troy, New York that I believe was built about 1835. It is post and beam construction. One of the nails I pulled from the attic floor looks like a "wroughthead". The head of the nail is roughly oval in shape. This one is different from square nails that I removed from an 1880 built home. They had square heads. Any way to date when this home was built?
