Judging by the screw, I would say it is fairly modern. Almost reminds me of an old window latch. (?)

Looks a little small to be a musket ball......... unless you have a tiny hand  :011:

The ball i think is steel and being from an old railyard im guessing a ball bearing of some sort but its just really old and pitted wasnt sure how far back they used ball bearings. The size of the ball is about 1.5" in dia.
