Easy, big fella. I don't doubt the anchor's authenticity, and my question concerning how best to preserve it was technical, not meant to be critical.
I appreciate that locals might not have the resources for preservation or display, which is where municipal, state or federal governments might step up to preserve (and advertise) an object of historical importance.
If it weren't for your Board, how many foreign tourists would know of the anchor's existence?
Thanks for the 2014 posts on the subject, and that same photo from the 2008 post that piqued my interest.

?? Was my reply aggressive or something? If so it was unintended.

As to its authentication, no me consta, but I believe no one has asked INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia) to do so because the first thing they'll want to do is confiscate it like they did all the artifacts at La Chole.
