    SOLVED: What is it? Looks like a pen cap but no idea???

    Hi All,

    Found this at a NJ beach, looks to be gold plated that is wearing off on some parts. Feels very solid throughout, the open end is crushed and is a hard metal that isnt movable with hands if that offers some help.

    No idea though other than possibly a gold plated pencap that filled with something that hardened or used very sturdy metal. There is either something filling the inside or the top half is solid, because its heavy.

    Pics attached, please let me know questions. Thanks for the help everyone!

    This was one of my thoughts as well as I've heard of ammunition being dug up on the beach lately.

    Thank you!

    Looks possibly to be an arrow head.

    Could very well be some kind of bullet?

    No question it is a fired bullet. Possibly WWII era tracer.
