Found an old farm which last existed around 1980. It is remarkably thin and brittle. It looks like it’s made of copper or brass. 817CA4C0-E62F-4388-AE4B-0AF48B186872.jpeg 4B02E2B6-4F44-45E3-94C9-48F932A3E839.jpeg Very interested in what any of you experts out there think what this thing specifically is.

I think I have one too... don't know what it is though. Found it at a house site from 1880-present that is on top of an 1820ish site.

It is a grease cap (hub cap) for a Model T, as Professor said. Those are nice finds.
