found this little guy a few outings ago and at first thought it may have been a saw medallion but after inspection, I think I can rule that out....and then I noticed two slits, opposite each other on the knurled rim. Now I am even more clueless. I have found on this same site a lead push-on cap from a gunpowder tin but this one is similar but is male threaded and not lead. Hope someone can identify it, for it has me stumped. Thanks for lookin,vn

It looks super thick and strong to be for a top to a can. I was thinking very early engine part for a car?
