    Solid brass/bronze & weights 12oz.
    Could this be from a wheel hub of a cannon or other military type equipment?
    Thanks for any input.

    Possibly a cannon muzzle plug. I googled it and something similar was shown. It was the inside part of the plug and looked very much like that part. Where the hole is was a ring attached in the photo.
