Default Warranted Standard Gilt, Belgian boot Derringer, pistol ball and a mystery disc...

***UPDATE***, The disc shaped object is apparently a Colonial Era "Bit Boss"... Anyone have any clue as to the mystery disc? Some designs on it, but nothing to denote want it's for.

The disc looks like some kind of bottle stop. That pistol is badass.
