Copper alloy awl/point that is a long thin rod that has an expanded waist (5mm diameter) towards one end. The longer side (from the expansion) is 40mm long and has a circular cross-section (3mm diameter) which very gently tapers to the tip, unfortunately the terminal is truncated. The shorter side (form the expansion) is 14mm long, and has a rectangular cross-section (2mm diameter) that narrows to a fine point; this side may have been used as a tang and could have been inserted into a socket.
