Despite the hot weather I made a trip to one of my IW fort sites. As usual, I've found several items I can't identify. This is the first one. It's a basic brass cylinder with a decorative spiral pattern on the outside. The inside is plain....no threads on either end. I first thought it was a safety razor handle, but Gillette didn't patent the first of those until 1904 and this site closed in the 1890s. Any ideas?
