Does anyone recognise the code EN15 engraved onto a rod of what I think is phosphor bronze?

...it's a carbon manganese steel.

EH or EN 15 ? You have one in the heading, the other in the text.

According to my copy of the Model Engineers Handbook EN15 is a plain carbon steel, modern designation 150M36.

This stuff is quite definitely not steel. I suppose the mark might be a local code.

Perhaps EN15 was the spec of the steel for the shaft to run in bushes made of the bronze you have? We can only speculate, I guess.
