Hmmm, I've found a few similar pieces over the years. Is the back threaded by any chance?

Solved, knew it looked familiar! Tongue

I tried hunting down the similar ones I found, but, probably threw'm away. See if it's threaded, as it might be an electrical cap. At least, that's the theory anyway, lol.

I know what that is!!

I have found a bunch of those.  Usually in old sites!!

Scythe:  Where the nib connects to the snath  This was at the base of the nib and acted like a lock washer.  There was a metal band that went around the snath.  You could loosen the metal band via a long bolt through the nib and move the nib to your desired location  and tighten it back up for Easy swinging!!
