    If it was steel I'd say it was some kind of alignment pin. Being brass (bronze, maybe?) rules that out. But opens up the anti-corrosive possibilities. Especially as you are in Maryland.

    As a WAG, perhaps something once used as a rudder pintle? Size is good for a smaller (under 20 ft) boat. Or some other pin for boat use?

    Possible. This piece was found in the mountains of Virginia.

    The tapered end went up the shaft of the wood implement. What the use was or what the broken end was fir- I got nothing.

    Shaft is kind of big to put in wood. A slight bend to it also.

    I have no idea on it either. It is also a little "out of round" and file marks are still visible.

    Well, I think I got an accurate ID. A brass knapper for shaping gun flints. 18th or early 19th century. There were contact period Indian items on the site, but this is a RARE THING!!!!!
