    possible sword blade?

    i found this object underground at a house built by the owner of Ben's Bread in the early 1900's. the house was used for the 1st class in WW11 (1939-1945) which would be majors and stuff like that. when i found it there was at least half a inch of rust on it, after cleaning the rust of you can see a kind of brass like colour to it. the end of it is curved up so it looks like a lot of force was needed to brake it. i would appreciate any insight on what it is or how old it is, thanks.

    I don't know what it is, but I'm pretty sure it's not a sword or any kind of tempered blade. Blades snap cleanly and this piece looks to have bent a full 90 degrees from that rolled edge. Also compared to the quarter if that was a full length sword blade it would be pretty hard to swing. My thought is that it's likely a tooth from some sort of farm equipment

    I collect military relics, mainly German and American, but interested in others as well, pre 1945 .. Always interested in adding to my collection

    From the grain I see in the rust, it looks like old time wrought iron. Could possibly be part of a hand sickle
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.
