I found this item quite a few years ago in Machias, Maine. It weighs 8 oz. I believe it is a handle of an early flint lock pistol. But, I am not sure.

Hi Wosterb
I'm sure it would make a decent grip for a pistol or a neat homemade knife or something...but it's off of a horse collar...but keep looking, lots of members have found guns etc!
Well thank you for that. I have been wondering about this item for years. About how old is this piece? Do you happen to know?

Are you from up that way? My ancestors on one side of my family were from Machias/St. Stephens.

Welcome to TNet, btw.

I am not originally from that area. But, I married a girl from there. I was stationed at Navradsta Cutler Me and then again several other times at Navcoom Cutler Me. Same place they were just given an updated name. I lived there for about 20 years off and on while I was in the navy.

Not sure how many Kings are still there, but if there are, I'm some sort of wayward 8th cousin.
