On a early 1800s site I found this big lead piece. Not sure if it matters but I’ve also found a confederate buckle at this site. I’m pretty clueless as to what this would be used for, my father in law suggested some kind of stamp for metal work. It’s about 1 1/2 inches long and 3/4 inch width.

an old fashioned clothing iron that you heat up on a wood fire stove?
I don’t know anything about old clothing irons. We’re they made out of lead like this? And it’s small..unless you mean it’s a broken piece off a old iron maybe that’s possible
