    Iron artifact mystery #1

    All, this iron artifact was found near a farmhouse built in the 1880s and inhabited ever since. At first I thought it was part of a well intake pipe, but after cleaning, noticed that unlike a pipe it was slightly concave and angled at all 4 corners. Also on the interior (3rd picture) there is a screw/bolt near one end that may have been used to fastening the artifact to something. The hole at the opposite end suggests that at one time there was a second screw/bolt. I realize it still looks rough (even after 2 days of electrolysis), but hopefully someone can ID and estimate the age.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Charlie P., I get that a lot! Sometimes when I keep asking though, junk turns out to be something historically cool.
