    Need Some Assistance With IDing

    Good Evening All. Dug up the below object last week, and have had no luck figuring out what it is so far.

    I was leaning towards something off of a rifle/musket, but that it just a guess at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if it was something having to do with a horse / harness. Thanks in advance for your expert opinions!

    It looks like iron. Any holes in it? What does the top of the big end look like?

    Nothing about it says 'musket' to me, unless it is a broken breech plug...

    Clean it up a little more and give us a few more angles we can work with.

    Looks like an old inside car door handle to me. More cleaning seems to be in order. Not an expert.
    You are in a great state for relic hunting.

    Confirming that it is iron. Here are some more pics after cleaning it up.

    It does have the look of a musket barrel tang. Maybe some of the gun guys will chime in...

    To close this one out, I sent pictures of the object to a company that deals with antique firearms located in Minnesota. Their response is below. Sounds pretty confident, so I am going to mark this one as solved.


    "Thank you for your photos, which depict a 'tang' from a hooked breech.

    Invented and patented by Henry Nock, London, these were made by many gun makers, in both flint lock and percussion lock versions, from about 1760 to 1890.

    Nearly all such guns were made in Liege, Belgium, or Birmingham, England, but the barrels are often marked LONDON regardless of the actual origin.

    It is from a single barrel gun (not a double barrel gun), probably a flint fowling gun, possibly a flint overcoat pistol."
