    Strange Hook Thingy???

    It's not magnetic, it's not brass, not lead, it's hard,
    No writing on it....
    found in an old home lot,, dime for size.
    So what is it
    It's probably and easy one, but I'm getting slower and older

    MJ 's thinking along the same lines as me. It does remind me of a figure 8 belay device for rapelling/abseiling.

    The hook part is for a rope. I thought it was horse related.
