Fairly certain it's not a scabbard tip finial from the lower shape. It is heavy for its size (8g) probably lead or pewter. In a couple of the pics there is the remains of a thin ferrous remnant at the attachment point.

Nice relic. I think I might have tossed it away. This is why it good to have knowledge like you do .Well done
Nice dig Yak Usually the lead and pewter finials are Confederate!!
Looks dang good Yak !
Like civilman1 said It's also my opinion that the Pewter & Lead ones were Confederate .
Looks to be pewter ?
Oh also my opinion .. as Parsonwalker stated it's likely off a Cap box.
Yeah I'm wondering if the soldier carved them out of lead or were they made lead? I've seen them lead but carved by a soldier and only see brass ones that weren't carved.
