Is this a weapon part? The round part is moveable when you move the rod behind it. Found near a civil war camp in northern Delaware. It is just under 1.75 inches in length. Thanks for looking. It says “45” and “US” on ig etc.

I'm going to agree it is part of a starter switch, had a 1950 dodge truck that had foot starter looked very similar if memory serves me correctly.
