    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).

    I think you could be right there Douglas!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    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!

    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.
