Dug this in close proximity to some flat buttons and blue feather edge pottery in the SC Lowcountry. Have yet to find any other pieces to it. Heavy brass that is just slightly over 3.5" across. Unlikely ordnance related.

Anyone have any idea what it may have been to?

Similar... but not limited to.... this............

I think you nailed it ARC. The base is slightly beat out in the center as if taking a lot of punishment from the inside.
