    Can you help with this unknown?

    Here are some pics of an unknown object I found amongst a very old homesite. Itís non ferrous, is crudely cut, and remains very sharp on the ends and edges. Maybe it is very old crude jewelry. Maybe it was never intended to be bent back. Iím unsure but I believe itís brass. It has six arms cut very symmetrically from the smooth center hole. It appears it may have had a stone? I have other jewelry type native items from here but this is just weird.

    It’s about a big as round as a quarter overall maybe slightly less. I have yet to find any letters. One thing that is obvious is cut marks down all the edges.

    It appears to be the peeled-off copper (or brass) jacket from a latter-20th-Century jacketed "Talon" type bullet. We dig them occasionally. The bullet's nose-tip is not jacketed, so sometimes when it strikes the ground the jacket opens up along the six cut-lines which entend down its sides, and peels off the bullet's lead main body. See the photos below.

    Iím not sure itís from a bullet..... I did think that when I first dug it. These are pics of 12ga Barnes expander deer sabot slugs, I recovered these after sighting in my gun the a season around the year 2000. They have resemblance but....

    Me too. I’ve looked at enough fires black talon rounds to agree. Also about 100 yards to the south I dug plenty of 30-06 brass. Target day I’d guess

    You think so? I put it in my junk. I feel like modern rounds are like pull tabs here in the Midwest. And pull tabs are just the carpeting around here!! Lol
