How long ago did somebody hammer this into a cocobolo tree?

Anyone want to guess what year this 4.5 inch square spike got hammered into the cocobolo tree? The tree kept grew another 1.25″ inches in diameter after it happened, and the bark healed over. No, sorry, can’t use growth rings to figure it out because tropical woods don’t have pronounced growth rings.
