got me there.
Never seen such a thing before either. Note the Queens Crown. Likes like they are supposed to be nailed to something? Furniture ornaments?

I know they are very different. They are thin but pretty strong. Thanks for taking a look guys.
They could be gun Tompions (decorative covers that go in the barrel of large guns).
Wow that sounds really promising. Very clever. Thank you Douglas! I have been staring at them for a year now not knowing what they are!
Any body know where I should start researching these? I haven't been able to find much. Thanks again
A boss from a decorative shield?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Shield bosses maybe. I found a link I'm going to try to post. It is an old US document of a Capt.'s inventory log of the ships wares and it states they had 8 brass, 3 inch gun tampions.
