You have stumped me Maryej. I have looked on some antique tool sites but didn't really see a good match. The circular end makes it look like it could be some type of latch release, say for a gate locking mechanism, where a finger could be inserted to pull the latch, or maybe some type of rope guide, or even an awl for heavy duty use, such as canvas or sail repair. The odd angle, if it is intended to be that way seems to make these unlikely though. Anyway, I am just having fun guessing. Hope you get an answer soon. All it takes is for the right person to come along. Interesting find.

Great job in identifying that part. I had not seen this post , being a big fan of old Fords I could have helped. I hope you get some more great finds. This one is an awesome find in my eyes , beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
