Here's another piece I've not been able to identify. It also looks to be made of brass. The large hole in the bottom looks like it has some threads in it. My caliper wouldn't fit into the smaller holes surrounding the large bottom hole, but they are 3/16" diameter. After the fort was abandoned the area was used for grazing cattle and then farming, which it still is being farmed presently....so this could be off a farm implement.

Looks like a ventilator or breather of sorts. Were used on many things. Some of my hit & miss have them.

Looks like the top of that little automatic brass air relief valve they put on old fashioned radiators.
