    not a positive id,,but the tag is actually a stud from an early artillery studded shell,i think these were used from mid 1800s to very early 1900s and replaced by the more commonly seen driving band you have on projectiles

    attatched image shows the studs on a 9pdr i had,,this type of projectile came in many sizes and was used by many different countrys
