The only thing worse than finding an item and not knowing what it is, is finding two identical unknown items. These were found at a site occupied late 1860s/early 1870s. They are1 1/2 inches in diameter and 3/8" thick. Appears to be brass, but could be copper.

I want to say they are furniture hardware, but I can't remember what. Of course, I could be totally wrong, too.

Hasn't something similar been IDed as the ferrule/end cap or something from a scythe or sickle?

Thanks, Mike! I know there was cavalry at this site so obviously they had to put up grass for the winter so that makes sense. BTW, I'm retired AF, also.
