Default Bayonet Scabbard Tip?

I found this today an I was curious if this is a bayonet scabbard tip. If so then would anyone know around what time frame this one could be in. Iím hunting a field that has history/war history from the 1600ís to civil war also includes stuff from war of 1812. If anyone could help me out that would be awesome. Itís brass and has some type of wood packing around the inside. Can post more pictures when I get home.

Looked through several examples, and none of them matched that. My guess is that it's a cane tip.

I am wondering if this could be the top to a flag pole or standard pole? It reminds me of the top on some flag poles that you put on the side of the house for like 4th of July.

Also seems very possible I just canít find anything that matches it. If I had to guess though Iíd say itís late 1800ís because all the brass Iíve found around it has been late 1800ís.
