This was found in a old fisherman's yard where I've found a lot of colonial stuff from around the 1750's. At first I almost discarded it as junk them I got it home and cleaned it up and noticed the top of it looked to be decorated (almost like a elephant trunk, look at it close and you'll see what I mean). The pictures I took doesn't do it justice (I have a cheap scanner) but if you could handle it like me you would know its some kinda colonial artifact. I know it could use a cleaning for more detail but I read a post on this very forum that if you think its valuable not to clean it so I dare not clean it. Anyway, what do you think it is? How would I go about cleaning it (read use no chemicals)? My guess is some kinda of snuff tooter. Anything on this is welcomed even guesses!
HH and I look forward to your reply!

I've been detecting for over 20 years and never found any of this Atocha stuff. Ain't nobody going to jump on my site and show me up.
