Anyone out there know what this is?
« on: September 09, 2017, 21:44 »
Found this afternoon - I have no idea what it is.

My first thought was a bullet, but it isn't. Then I thought hole punch, but it hasn't been hammered on the base end - in fact, it has a female screw end in the base.

It is exactly 2 inches long (50.8mm) and about .4 wide (10.5mm). I think it is made of brass.

Does anyone have any ideas?
