Not sure what this is. I have found some spark plugs and other older car parts in the river I’m detecting in. Assuming copper but could be brass. The top piece screws off and it looks like air can be added. The bottom has a hole in it and the inside appears to have a white glass inner chamber.

I think that's a very early condensor for a tractor. Alice Chalmers by the color. The little nut is an electric terminal.

Here's as close to an image as I could find.

You're right. I enlarged the image and it is a cap rather than a nut on the fitting. I thunked wrong.

I'll cut you some slack, Charlie. I've seen more of your posts and know that most of the time you're thunking right!
