    another what is it made of brass

    Attachment 1536106Found this near some cw bullets. That is the whole story for now, but maybe more will come. The peg is 5.25 inches long and the top cap is 2.5 inches wide.
    Thanks for looking. JT

    Here is the top from a side shot. It appears to be welded from a side view.Attachment 1536623

    I looks like it was spot welded onto something. Maybe the top of a really big tent pole - like for a Sibley tent or similar?

    I'd like to see the other side of the "top".

    He then explained to me that it was commonly believed that on a certain night of the year…
    a blue flame is seen over any place where treasure has been concealed.

    Looks kinda like a tongue/hitch pin, but I've never seen a brass one?

    There was a Yankee fort about 500 yards away. Still working at this and will add the top view.

    I'm reading through this thread and I get to this reply. I'm thinking what in the world is a "hog scraper" and why would Cruisin guess that. So I searched and I can kind of understand now. I thought I would share a photo to either help rule it in or out.

    A hog scraper would fit right in with Civil War relics. It's something they would have used in a camp kitchen. It could be something else but I'm still leaning toward the scraper. LOL, you can still get them today on Amazon!

    If this question is directed at my post with photo, IDK. There were no details for it.

    I don't know what it is bu if it turns out to be common you can get a little bit of money for it at the scrap ; it being brass & all.

    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.
