Put it in a watertank where you can measure the amount of displaced water. See this up against platinum specific weight (21,3 kg pr dm3)

Do a heat test Melting point 3224 deg. F , or 1773 Deg. C , Like I said it migth be a counter weight. Definitely 999.999% not platinum.

Or It might have come from a WSMC vessel of:
Washington State Maritime Cooperative
The Washington State Maritime Cooperative (WSMC) is a non-profit corporation that provides oil spill contingency plan coverage and emergency response system to vessels in Washington waters.
