Default Well at least its something !!

Hello all.
The lean times continue.
I tend to stomp around fields now with my bottom lip sticking out and a negative attitude, swinging the detector around like its something im trying to throw away.
But yesterday a signal, some frantic digging and an object.
Saw what it was but until cleaned up not what it did ...if that makes sense !
Anyway check the pics of my quirky find and see if you can tell what it is.
Happy hunting friends.

Slick find, I actually think it looks better without the top! Congrats on a very unique item.

Thats a really cool find, and Bluebird is probably right, It does look like a pencil sharpener.

I enjoy these unique relic finds more than the coin finds.
