Any thoughts of this or what it was attached to. The hole is not threaded. It's heavy for it's size (22g). Casting looks basic and not symmetrical.

And there was I, ambling along thinking detecting was getting in the way of a good walk! Unfortunately this was the only thing of note that turned up.

Thanks all for the ID, much appreciated.
