Old square nail found in the historic dock

Whilst wandering I came across this


I’m guessing it hand made as shows hammering marks on the head and remains of the shaft which would date it as early 1800’s .I’m guessing not a ship nail but possibly from old doors or crates. It looks as if it would have been maybes 5 or 6 inches long and about a quarter of an inch square .

Comments welcome if you have a better idea what it is ?
