I'm not sure but I think this was a cigarette case. What ever it is, it has some really nice engraving.
I dug this gold plated mans wedding ring in a field at the site of a Union Cavalry camp. I don't think it's from the Civil War but it's still a nice find. When I first saw it, I just saw the edge and thought I'd found a gold coin.
Here's a twisted wire ring I found not far from the gold ring above. I really like those personal items.
A Slaymaker US Army padlock produced in the early 1900's. Shown before and after electrolysis.
I didn't know what this was for quite some time. I finally found out that it is a leg band for a racing pigeon.
Part of a music stand. Found at a Girls School that dates to 1789.
A lead Hem or Dress weight. Sewn into the hem of a woman's dress. These are commonly found at old house sites.
The front and back of the wreath portion of a two piece sash buckle. Probably from the early 1800's
A pretty big hunk of folded lead. It was folded twice and an iron nail was driven through it and bent over.
A wood handled pocket knife and pen knife with a cast handle.
A few utensils. Some were silver plated.
Colonial Buckles found at a Civil War site in Fauquier County, Va.
Half of a Colonial shoe buckle and a brass skeleton key. Found at the same site as the above buckles.
