Hi everyone, first post here. I found this summer of 2013 while metal detecting. It was about ten inches in dirt, in an area that is laden with old railway items. I researched it and it's from "Brockville & Ottawa Railway" from the 1850's. I've no idea of where and what it came off of. Is there any thoughts and ideas on what it is. Thank you in advance. Jon
