Can you identify this object??? I'll post the answer after others have replied. A few years ago when my son was moving to his new (to him) home, he was gathering a load of scrap metal to take to the salvage yard. I seen this in the trailer and ask about it. He said that he found it in the woods while hunting (at least that's his story, and I think he's sticking to it). I thought it was neat so I brought it home. To give reference to it's size, it is laying beside a 24" builder's square.
