Welcome to CWT from the Smoky Mountain side of North Carolina. Just jump right in and enjoy.
Sorry no clue..but just a guess. It could be a wedge of some kind the hole for a pin to hold the wedge in place?

Total speculation, but looks like the end-cap of a pole meant to be jammed into the ground, such as flag, guidon, or maybe even a tent pole.

Had the same idea, but thought maybe the opposite end - the top - with the hole being for a fixing screw or nail, or maybe to hold a decorative tail.
