Hello Rubberdiver,
                        That is a very interesting find you have there! Congrats Clapp Clapp Clapp, I have an idea that comes to mind, from the facial features, what is this object made of? and on the bottom it looks as if it was attached to something.
Thanks for posting your find, Best Wishes ....Rob

Hi RubberDiver,
                      It is possible, that was its intended purpose, what is the overall length?
I'll look up to see if I can find anything on it for you. There is a couple of theories I have but I dont think we are that far off.. Best Wishes ,,,Rob

Maybe even older than Civil War   Maybe European. The outfit looks religious. Maybe early settlers.  Nice find.

Yes, I think that's most likely what it is! A very nice find for any relic collector!
