This artifact was located on a shipwreck off the coast of New England of a possible fishing vessel equipped with a 6 cylinder Atlas or Fairbanks Morse diesel engine (circa 1940s). The artifact is made out of brass or bronze and is possibly associated with the vessel's engine. I am trying to identify this artifact to help date and possibly identify the vessel.
There were several of these artifacts on the shipwreck site roughly all in the same location.
I have included photos of both sides of the item (see below)in hopes that someone will be able to help me figure out what it is.
