All looking for an ID and age of this knight head on a farm that has inhabited since at least the early 1800s. It is very heavy (lead or pewter?). First thought it was related to Knights Templar/Knights of Pythias - but it differs from those. Being solid I think it rules out a sword pommel or cane - but... There appears to be an outer coating with the details that is in better condition on one side (see the first 3 pictures) when compared to the last (that shows a lot of base material). The outer coating has some deep cracks and would also like any advice on how to secure what is left.

Gare, on the berm of a gravel farm road in SW Ohio. I think the whitish color is from limestone which is prevalent in the area.

All, while searching "Knight" on TNet I came across an old post called "Knight Head?". While not a match it pointed me in the direction of Willys Knight. Looking at pics on-line I came across a match. The artifact found is part of a late 1920s Willys Knight radiator cap. The pic below appears on eBay - but others like it can be seen on Google Images.
