here is one for you . my buddy george found this a couple of years ago in rhode island. he thinks it has something to do with a cannon tool. its one piece and very heavy with three holes one of the hole looks like it could have some type of a catch in it. what do you think.

Looks like a pocket watch lol but it ain't. I don't know what it is, but why does your buddy think it's a cannon tool? Any ideas on how it would be used on one? :confused: It's an odd piece, since I'm assuming nothing opens up on it?
