    Strange item

    I found it in the midst of a large ammo collection in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I don't think it is ammo related, but who knows. It says "Brothers Inc.NY, Made in USA" and "Stratford", somebody erased brothers' name. Brothers' name seems to have 4 letters, the 1st letter is definitely "S", the rest I am guessing to be "Sims" or Salz". Nothing written on the item itself. What is it?

    I think it's used for inserting suppositories. Missing the lanyard.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Well, if Rick isn't kidding as to what it's use is, I guess it could be a projectile of a sort. I'd say that the lanyard would DEFINITELY be a required item. I'd hate to see that get "lost"

    The "cinch" ring is a dead giveaway that this is the INSERTER MK1*. The MK2 was larger diameter which required a pull chain spot welded in place.

    Knowledge evidently covers both "ends". It's called an Innuendo, it's an Italian Suppository.

    When I worked sterilizing medical instruments we called this "The Bullet" so it's related, get a few
    Hemorrhoids and you will find out --- Just don't look when the Dr aske's for a Q Tip -- It's not what you think
    and if you come out feeling like you've been muzzle loaded and swabbed - well you just were ~

    Good thing we have experts here who know (should I say) both ends of a coin.
