44CC178/37/2C-6 Cockscrew 755

Cock Screw
 —Gun part
from any of the flintlock- type gun-lock plates which would have had a cock
to hold the flint, in this case probably a snaphaunce.  The cock
screw held the jaws of the cock tight against the flint grips.
Recovered from Causey’s Care, a mid-17th-century site in Charles City
