    Can I assume that using brass round-head nails for additional security would interfere with doing the brass rubbings? If that's not important, epoxy AND the brads might be one step closer to permanency...

    How about epoxy resin to hold it in place but for extra security silver solder a brass bar to the bottom with ridges around it which will also add to the strength of the bond it would only need to be say 1/2" diameter and 1" long. Drill a hole in the post to accept it. This would leave the top flush for the rubbing

    A summary would include the above that should ensure success. My hobby of Lapidary tells me the use of two part Epoxies makes an incredible join that withstands and holds.
