I found one about half that size and thought ...

someone had made a funky looking boat anchor until I took it to our monthly meeting. A retired Vet we call "Sarge" said "I haven't seen one of those since basic training" He said the hoop that I thought was for the anchor rope to be tied to was how they attached the bomb to the underside of the wings on the planes. The hole through the middle of the entire thing held the charged cone end in place that fired off smoke on impact so the pilots could see how close to the target they got. I did find it in a lake so someone may actually had used it as an anchor :)
