    This resembles a utensil handle and has a stamped mark on one side. It is non ferrous metal, rather heavy but doesn’t appear to be lead...It has letters JP and then C or C with an O in the middle of it.....not sure..but curiously one edge is thicker than the other. Any ideas!

    Here were surrounding finds.

    That long piece may be the pen that went in the holder?

    Thanks for looking and commenting creskol...Not sure what long piece is being referred to. The 2 photos after the stamped piece are the two edges of that same piece...one side is thicker than the other.

    Not sure about the JP piece, but it might be a John Pound & Co mark.

    That’s cool and an interesting picture! Thanks! I wonder what size that was? I certainly would explain the wide and narrow edges! How did you ever find that? I’m impressed!

    The only thing in the description about size was 1/10th scale. So I'm guessing these are small. The set is for indoor use. AKA Floor Golf.

    Thanks! Yes, the ID looks like it fits! I am not sure why or how the handle piece would have broken off but the shape definitely works. I never would have guessed “golf club”! Thanks for looking, highnam!
