Strange Brass item Civil war or Indian war era ? Locking Ring ?


Recommended Posts

I friend found this item in an extremely old blanket chest with some other civil war or Indian war era gear! It latches shut by the top piece it has a strange little hole, it is fairly heavy for how small it is! Is it some form of military gear ? Thanks for looking
