    Mooring spindle.

    I know it is a long shot but maybe someone can ID this one. It could/should be a sea mine mooring spindle retrieved from the sea after the war north of the Dutch isle of Terschelling and demined on board a fishing vessel, the captain was allowed to keep the spindle.
    I’am trying to verify the make English/German?
