It’s got that lead patina on it and it’s flat as you see then it gets round and then there’s a shark tip. I’ve racked my brain on this particular piece and I kept it and I just found it so maybe one of y’all can help me out

Is it metal, wood, stone? Does a magnet stick to it? At first I wanted to say a handle to a trowel but the point has me baffled? Location of find? Did you find metal detecting?

I found it Metal Detecting and I thought it was led due to the Patina but I might be wrong. It definitely was a head scratcher so I kept it and it’s been in the back of my display case driving me nuts. I have to find a magnet I’ll get back with you. I appreciate you taking a look it’s such an odd shape of flat to round cylinder to a point. Weird

A spring end could ride on the pointed end inside a cylinder. And the flat end be a latch/fit in a mortise or similar catch.

IF it had a protrusion on the top of the last picture it would be a little like the mechanism on a snap hook for a horse or dog lead. (Pronounced " Leed" not heavy metal "lead".) that has a spring behind it.
