With the good weather I tried one of my newer sites in the middle of a farm field, didn’t find anything of note but this was a bit odd, with the conical heavy iron end I thought maybe some kind of tooth but the way the back is makes me think maybe it attached to wood somehow, anybody seen one of these before

It looks like a replacement point for some type of digger tooth. Backhoe ripper?

It does look as if it's been in the ground a while...
DCMatt I was thinking the EXACT SAME thing you are thinking on this

Let me ask a stupid question. How big is the farm field??
Roughly 150 acres

You guys may be right, I was hung up on some kind of cultivator tooth but I hadn’t seen anything shaped like that. As far as I know it’s been a flat field in the river bottom unless it’s from the late 1800’s when they cleared the field I can’t think of why a back hoe would be in there but you never know.

… well now that I think about it there was a barn in another part and a bit of ceramic and a few house related items in another place… could have been down there pushing those buildings in… there’s no record of any houses kinda like the other site I’ve posted things from but I think there’s a good chance there was

I think all of us have it close. See what else you can find there.

It is the "shoe" tip for a wooden sweep tooth. Keeps the wood from splintering. Used for picking up hay windrows and "sweeping" them to a hay stack.
That may be the one that tied all the suggestions together… the nails or posts on the back seemed too small attach to steel, that’s why I thought wood, and it’s very possible that part of the field was for hay.

Thanks all for Putting the pieces together.
