Gt one exactly like it in a Navy group. Looks like it would have been a nice souvenir.

I picked up one like that once, it had been made by one of the AAF mechanic shops,thought it was 'cool', so i did some research, found out that this AAF mech shop had taken scrap nuts, smoothed them down inside and out,they would engraved whatever the buyer wanted.
