Pretty little ingot.
This is a small bar of zinc that was clearly meant to be some kind of commemorative or advertising item, presumably for the Bunker Hill company/mine/town/whatever. The surface has been etched to bring out the crystal patterns, and it has little felt feet on it. Obviously a bar meant to be appreciated, not melted down. It's fairly high purity for zinc, if we believe the 99.99 molded in it.
