Default 2016 wrap up lots of pics

First hunt of year I got the barber half.
Every thing is pretty self explanatory.
The 1841 large cent is made of pewter! !! Second counterfeit
The ww2 pin was a surprise find in a farm field
few gold rings
gold locket
Gold pocket watch
HALF reale 1769
The six coin spill with 3cent piece, flying eagle and beautiful indians
Zachary Taylor campaign button
i made key chains out of my mercury dimes and indians. Give them to property owners.
And my best find was the belt plate buckle. War of 1812 artillery era

I have a question. Picture #26. Looks like maybe cuff links. What is it and how big is it. I ask because I have one half of whatever that is , if it's in the nieghborhood of 2 inches and I'm curious. Have you ID'd it ? Btw, nice year !!

I buy the bezels off Amazon. And make the rest with stuff from a craft store.And use locktite on the bezel so it never unscrews .
Heres the link to one of them
