Ok, I do not have a clue what this is! I just thought I would throw it out there and see what comes back. Help me out here.
It was in a box with the Worthington brass plate I listed the other day.

    stonesfan1, thank you very much. I guess the wood handle does not really go with the brass part.

    Wood part looks to have been added to make into a walking stick at one time, I see people use these for that a lot.
