      If it's copper, probably a letter opener.

      Blunderbuss2 Could be used as one, But i truly Believe it's a real Peice of History. documents show the Unit CBMU 537 was at Noumea Harbor in 5-20-44. The gentlemen served in The Navy where these came from. I Wished i had the Chance to talk to Him . But we found his Keepsakes in the Garage in a Bottom Drawer of a Cabinet.
