Default "Rusty B"

I've no idea how I came by this - a block for printing official stationery for HMS Bulwark. It a hefty piece of steel - 400 g and 127 x 38 mm. It was scanned and flipped to get the true appearance. "Rusty B" lives on!

I always find these sorts of things interesting, but the problem always is "what do I do with it?"
Paper weight? Doorstop? Throw it through a jewelers window by moonlight?
