    Is this a sword pommel or something else?

    Dug this earlier in the week at a small 18th century house site only about 50 ft from where I recovered a British 80th regimental Rev War button last spring. At first I thought it was just a knob, finial or furniture decoration, but I later realized it had a small hole in the end. I know some pommels had this general look, but can't be sure of its identity. I'm leaning toward it not being a pommel at the moment. Any help appreciated.

    possibly, search "brass rapier pommel" and some similar ones come up

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