A fishy number on a post

Yesterday I posted a close-up of something which looked like a marine creature.

Here is its partner:

Davidss sussed that it was a bent nail, hammered such that the head had folded over.

The two nails fasten a small metal plate, bearing the number 1199, to a post. The post is near Bridge 63 on the Grand Union between Castlethorpe and Yardley Gobion.

My question now is ... why?

Poor workmanship if you ask me, no way to treat a nail... LOL
And no I don't know the real answer to your question either :(
