If you even thought it was any type of explosive device you should never have disturbed it. It would still be potentially dangerous.

Subject: Fwd: What IS this?
This item was found about 20 yards from the rail road tracks at
Shenandoah Caverns in Shenandoah County Virginia. The tracks have
been there since about 1867. Do you know what this item is? It is
about 12 inches long,3 inches around at the large end. Small end is
about 1 inch around, may have had a wood handle at one time. The
prongs on each end are about i inch long now. They are rusted off or
broken now. at first I was thinking that it could be a civil war
grenade, but that has since been ruled out.
Thank you off your help.
