    can anybody identify this? possibly an old bottle cap?

    can anybody identify what this old metal piece is? I think it might be an old bottle cap?or maybe an end cap for a pipe?

    Pipe cap or conduit cap. Are there threads inside it?

    It is not a bottle cap, I think that option can be eliminated completely from the list of possibilities.

    Seems familiar. Could be an end cap for a refrigerant line? What did you find with it? Anything to give us some clues?

    I'm thinking that it may be a furniture leg metal glide.

    It had 3 sharp points to hammer it into a wooden leg of table or couch.

    I think your correct, because it looks like the sharp points have broken off
