That is called a hem weight.  It was either used to keep a coat or a curtain hanging correctly, I forget which.

Good find, much rarer than a button, that's for sure.  Great

I'm not saying this is civil war, just saying that it is pretty old.

Thanks for the info after looking at your post I went to ebay and found some that were civil war era and definitely not that old the bar in the middle is definitely machined perfectly round where those were flat

I see what you are saying, come to think of it I found one of those a few years ago that was almost identical to yours, I'll see if i can find it.
