    Gents,

    Is that an inscription across the 'stock' of the Anchor?

    Hi Gene! I have only this additional pic. It doesn't look like an inscription I think.

    Hi Evgeny

    Are you sure? It looks like lettering to me?
    It too indistinct to read but it looks like it's possibly got some Cyrillic characters? It could be my eyes playing tricks but it looks like, И I Д L O M?
    I know that makes no sense.

    The guard is frustrating, similar to some European and even American guards.
    I can't find anything 'exactly' like it though.

    Beats me. Absence of a crown suggests that it's from the fleet of a Republic.

    As far as I know Britian and the US are the only countries to use the fouled anchor. Eric
