    Maybe a Nipple protector. HELP

    Good afternoon everyone, I am new to the Civil War page. I am hoping that someone here could help me identify this piece I found yesterday. It is hard to describe, but it resembles a nipple protector. Thanks for looking at this item and all help is appreciated.Click image for larger version.

    I think it could be with just the flange broken off.

    It looks like a nipple protector, and it is. They were manufactured and made buy soldiers out of a lead bullet. When I was young I did Civil war reenacting. For my Union soldier impresion I used a factory one for my 1861 Springfield. For my Cofederate impresion I made one out of a 577 mini bullet for my Enfield.

    Tuff call there man.

    It could be
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    thanks everyone for replying. I just wanted to bring something to light. The thing I found is open on both ends. It seems to me that the nipple protectors are only open on one end and this one is definitely made out of brass. Troutbum, do you have a picture of the factory ones you mentioned?

    Part of a door lock. You'd have a square rod that is partially threaded through the square hole that the knobs would go on. I think Yale made some, and most I have are no names. They took a "skeleton key".
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
