    Cast Iron Ashtray, is it possible?

    Well this thing weighs 3 pounds and looks like a cast iron ashtray, any other ideas would be most welcome.

    Found in a field about a foot down. Nothing else around it.

    Looks like a "foot" off of a piece of equipment.

    I thought that at first but can see nothing that would suggest it attached to anything other than the "teeth" inside it.

    Do some electrolysis on it and use it for an ashtray.
    No one will steal it.

    Kind of looks like the bottom of a crankcase off a tractor?
    More than likely farm machinery related considering where you found it.

    What a brilliant ID. Thanks so much for that.

    Now I just have to figure out how it got into a middle of a field that is nowhere near a road. The nearest tarmac road is 3 miles away.

    My initial guess would be that it was dug up and hauled away along with the dirt and debris during a road reconstruction project which was then dumped or used as fill dirt.
