not sure, Ace400. Shaped like head found on a harness hame, but smaller. Thinking it may be top to a flag staff. Just a guess.

Its a thing that goes on the horns of oxen. I find them in farm fields alot. They'd start with a threaded ball and use this type as they get bigger horns.

This one seems way too small for that and it had shards of wood in it.

Hey Wayne have you found any colonial relics down in your neck of the woods?
I know there was some Regulator activity close by.
