Does anybody happen to recognize what this thing might really be or what its for?? It was picked up recently in the backyard at the cleanout house, simply because I found it an intriguing part of *something*...?? ;-) :-) It appears to be made of lead, measuring 2-1/4" x 3/4", and weighs nearly 14oz. I gently brushed one side of it with a wire brush for these pics, the other is basically as-found. It has a small brass wire loop cast into it, to hang it from something else. (?)
My *ONLY* guess it that it might have once been a part of this old Singer sewing machine I showed months ago
because it was found on the ground in proximity to where that machine once sat -- which eventually turned out to be the infamous 'cleanout house'. (and thus, it parts have all been collected into a pile in the garage there for safekeeping until 'one of these days'... <lol>)
But of course, that backyard is also full of all sorts of little metal bits of anything else, rusty tools, car parts, and whatnot, so it truly could have come from *anything*...??
