    Those are good guesses, the furniture leg did cross my mind.

    How about a brass butt plate for a flintlock pistol?

    Wow this thing is really cool. It reminds me of the old cast drilled shank or drilled wedge shank button but without the drill hole. However I realize its too big to be a button but it reminds me of these.
    Early Buttons "The most characteristic attribute of most Spanish military buttons of this period was the drilled wedge shank or eye by which the buttons were secured to their uniforms. Cast via the lost wax method by artisans who varied greatly in terms of maintaining standards of quality control, each button had an integrally cast, rounded to rectangular slab or wedge of metal fixed in an upright position to the button's reverse face. An eye was formed by drilling or punching a hole in the upright shank either prior to or following the casting process."
    I dont know what it is but I like bologna321's guess. There are too many T. Keenans to easily find it but this should be solvable.

    I would think that it may have something to do with a bell of some sort. Only a guess.

    since there is no way to really secure that tab into something(no hole) and the writing is on the tab. ill wager it is some kind of leather or jewlers tool. kinda like a form or anvil surface? Just a shot in the dark though, it has me stumped. just doesn't look like it was ever fastened to anything. maybe a cobblers tool of some sort?

    Neat find! I have no guess, but I wouldn't think that the section with his name on would go into anything (permanently) such as a grip of a pistol, chair/table leg, etc. Otherwise, why have the name on it and then bury it into the wood?
