Question One foot down?
Quote this message in a reply
5 1/2 inches long, weighs in at 3 oz., and looks like pewter, but gave a 76-80 reading on the AT Pro. Any ideas?

I'm leaning toward the idea that it is a weapon of sorts. The only thing I can think of is a double ended throwing spike. Which were not unheard of in that era. Any other input out there?

Need some perspective for size.
Is that a round rod coming out of the end?

Looks a lot like a trolling fishing weight but that would be made of lead and I've never seen lead flake like that.

Yeah, kind of looks like pewter, but?

My house was used as an infirmary during the civil war, but I don't think it came from a flag pole.

Yes there does appear to be some sort of rod coming out of one end, that should give up this things identity, but I am still stumped.
