    IMG_5960.JPG weighs approximately 4 lbs. the markings say either "H6 62" or "39 9H" just curious if anyone could point me in the direction for gaining for knowledge on this (brand, year of creation, etc etc.) thank you!

    Perhaps a window or door counterweight. Looks too crude to be a scale weight. As Wiscbirddog pointed out plumb bobs need a point.​

    I was told it was a plumb bob when I bought it! It seems I am wrong?!

    As Joe in PA said, it is a counterweight of some sort. At 4# probably too heavy for a sash weight, maybe for a door.

    What size is it? Do you know what metal (test with a magnet to see if it is iron)?

    Looks like you have chunk of metal that would work well for a door stop.
