    Homemade teardrop drawer pull ? I'm 0.002% sure that's what it is, so I won't be wagering a whole heck of a lot on that idea of what this copper object is found at the known Indian mound with no name. :icon_scratch:

    I said found near. I would never go treasure hunting at a burial site and I posted this in the artifacts forum first. Even if I was down the river two miles I thought it was close enough to mention. I was actually bottle hunting and this was a surface score

    I think it looks pre-columbian, but don't have any idea what it could be.

    I know what this is, it is Amerindian,
    It is a unique peice i wish i had one.
    It is a smoking tool used with peice pipes,
    It was used to pass around the Censer or extra bowl attachment. I imagine it like this , meet up with my native budies to smoke some peacepipes around the camp fire, everybodys doin good and dexked out in silver n all so obviously we all got our own fancy pipes, nobody likes sharing. So we all smoke and have a good time. But one guy got some realy good herb, and he aint guna fill everyone pipe! So he compacts the hell outa the fancy extra ceremonial bowl "censer" and sticks it on the coals , they use your fancy tool to pick up the censer and pass it between the pipes and the coal, they used they fingers bot the bowl gets hot, and last thing you wana do is drop the bowl. See the bottom right of the photo

    It is not brass... it is definitely bronze.
    It is not a bottle opener or any other "modern" item.
    It is definitely cool. ... and rare. IMO

    Wish I could help on this one Mint...
    I tell you what...
    I will get my lazy arse int a research mode for you...
    Which is rare these days I might add.

    I just walked in ... long hot sore day.
    Shower and some food is in order.

    I am surprised that not more have joined this thread...
    And to be honest I forgot all about it.
