Working a cornfield today that has turned up knee buckles and flat buttons in the past and recovered this guy. It’s copper. Its hollow. And I have no idea. Anyone have a guess? DEB44B5B-FFD5-4CA2-8528-DB083C7A1F23.jpeg 0F538BD6-B503-4ABF-8583-4EA2CC999F60.jpeg

wonder if it could have been the gas pickup on the end of the fuel hose on an old chainsaw. may have had a filter inside it.

The small end appears to be designed to fit inside of a hose/pipe maybe secured with a collar. My first thought was some kind of nozzle, but nothing like it came up after a Google search.

Wow...that's a real head scratcher Ed...:icon_scratch:

Is the green I see paint, or oxidized copper?

Thinking it's either it's a early version of a water hose nozzle,
or a Civil War era one-hitter.

Yea that whats left of the oxidation after a good scrubbing. Both the chain pull and hose bit make sense! Thanks everyone for the input.
