This brass tip is about an inch long and appears to have been round but is squished as found. It looks like it is crimped at the large open end but the tip has a little rounded but flat extension at its tip. I don't think it is a cane tip.....no wear to the tip and the extension would be of no purpose. I thought maybe a bayonet scabbed tip or a parasol finial but have no idea. Thanks in advance for your insights.
