    So curious as to what this very heavy object is. Could it be bronze? Should I try to polish a small portion? Thank you for any help!

      What do you want it to be ? LOL ! Foundry patters are marked like that, but would be made of cheaper material, like wood.

      How big is it? Does the hole go all the way thru? Is it dome shaped or straight? Brass and bronze can be very similar as there are many possible alloys. Generally brass is more red, bronze is more yellow. Can you tell if it is cast, sintered, or formed? Whew! That's alot of questions
