    I have another mystery for you!

    What is this? My initial though was some sort of adornment that went through a button hole, maybe the face fell off. But once again I'm stumped. It's a brass octagon with a stem. Is it the butt of a rivet? the only reason I kept it was because of its shape. Help me!Click image for larger version.

    This link shows how they are used and why they are almost always bent when we find them: http://www.archive.org/stream/HowToA...r+storm+anchor
