what is it found metal detecting?

Recommended Posts

Looks like an old, corroded copper cable. Note in pic # 1 & 5 the many round or hexagonal segments, these appear to be the individual copper strands that made up the cable.

Looks to be brass to me but can't tell what it was. Maybe an old ground rod of some sort? Looks older than that though.

Maybe a brass or bronze exterior to act as a “sacrificial anode” to protect the interior from corrosion.
