I found this in Kentucky and I have no idea what it is how old it is or what it’s used for. I think it’s some type of an old steel made material the little skinny shaft at the end where the pic looking thing is it’s pretty solid and strong. This came from Nicholasville Kentucky downtown an old house that could not even be dated because it was condemned and non-dated a guy redid the house and he was digging out the old rock footer area and brought the dirt to my house because he had nowhere to put all of it, and I found this in it, if anybody knows what it is, let me know. The gas as I’ve got on. It is a horse hoof pic, a torch, lit, light flame tall, to put out the flame, a gun pick, I’ve been told it’s some type of a dentist a doctor surgery tool! I’ve also been told it might be Civil War. It looks medieval to me I don’t know.

I’m a newbie at this I guess I hit some pictures that I did not mean to as I was trying to pick out the pictures the Coin pictures are not supposed to be in this it is just a weird looking steel tool closer to the bottom if I knew how I would delete the ones that I had on here first I thought by hitting the checkmark in on the little circle it would only post those but apparently I was wrong and I don’t know how to stop them from coming on here but anyways, I apologize did not mean to send the coin pictures. This is only about the weird, medieval, looking tail

Maybe a tool for modeling clay or pottery? Any old pottery making shops in the area?
