Slating (Roofing) Nails have a large, flat head, annular ring and diamond points. The copper roofing nails are frequently used for copper flashing applications, and during slate, tile roofing installations.
Copper Slating Nails are often used with Copper Burrs, also known as copper washers, to create a traditional copper rivet, similar to clinch or clench nailing. The large diameter heads are typically used with softer woods. Copper rivets are utilized in classic planked wooden boat construction.

MET / STD:
are these nails non ferrous?
Yes, they are non magnetic and are solid copper (not plated) of what ever copper alloy they are made of.
They are reasonably pure copper, therefore, they are non-ferrous. We fully installed 1300 sq ft of copper on our ship's bottom and re-attached another 3000 sq ft with these nails. A few thousand did the trick.Larry ClintonPeacemakermarine

Authentic Copper Nails for Resoration of Vintage Criss~Craft
I used the Copper Slate nails to refer bush the padded area of a vintage 1950s wooden boat cradle. The nails worked perfectly to secure canvas batting over natural felt pads. The copper should patina with age giving me the classic feel I have been seeking.
I would buy this product again and again
I made a built in cabinet and wanted a copper top with an aircraft rivet look. Rivets proved too difficult to install so I opted for copper nails and it worked out wonderful. Accepted a rich patina like the copper sheeting. Looks great! Just need a short nail with a broad head and a lots of them!
I used these to dress up pulley blocks I made for a pirate pontoon.
