Date Nail

A date nail is a nail with a year stamped in its head. For example, a nail with a "41" is from 1941. Date nails were driven into railroad ties, bridge timbers, utility poles, mine props, and other wooden structures for record keeping purposes. Most were made of steel and measure 2 1/2" long, with 1/4" shanks. We mill the shank diameter down to create a post-style cuff link.

N Cuff Links $95

When ordering, specify desired year. For example, "N45" for 1945.


This collection is founded on the premise of giving a loved one their birth year to wear on their sleeve. We stock the years 1930 to 1969. The date nails have varying degrees of wear. We match them up to the extent possible. Due to the nature of this program we cannot guarantee the availability of every year.
