What the heck is it?

Article about: Here is some good info: PCGS - Buffum Tool Company Guys, this is obviously not Hitler's spear of destiny. Everyone knows that I have his original Speer des Schicksals in my collection.

    This is my first post so be gentle. I've had this item for for over 20 years and have no idea as to what it is. Anyone have any thoughts about it?

    Thanks Guys for such a quick response. I have taken the “THING” to a local gun show and got the same response of being Indian or from an old farm equipment manufacture that used a swastika as company logo. It a cast steel piece and seems out of place as an Indian artifact. I can't imagen what it may have be used for.

    Thanks Joe

    There was another thread here with a similar theme. It was a wire fence tightener w/ the swazi logo on it from Scotland. Also it could be Mugal ( early ottomann), possibly a spear head.IMO. Good luck and strange item! It's always good to have something in your collection that makes people go,"HUH?!" I like it. I also liked the "spear of destiny" comment too!LOL!

    I remember seeing something somewhere about a tool and farm equipment manufacturer in the early 1900's that used that sort of thick, bold swastika as it's emblem. What it is exactly, I have no idea, but I am fairly certain that it's not German or even military-related for that matter.

    Thanks for your inputs. It appears to be a tool to me. But I can imagine what it used for.

    Thanks
    Joe
