Default Powder flask, silver, bell, and old copper

So Been really busy, but here are my last two outings from the past two weeks. The silver came from a spot that forum member biblot took me too that was a minor league baseball field since the early 1900s. The other relics are from a couple cellar holes that I hit up. Found my first powder flask which I can check off the old bucket list, could not find the cap to it for the life of me though. Also found this coin I can not identify, I swear it has the letters "zeping" showing and what looks to be a wreath on that same side, but not positive on that. Everything but the silver found at the ball field was found with my nox 800 with my new 6 inch coil. This coil is super handy in the cellar holes, and even still picked up that coin at 10 inches down! Not bad at all. Thanks for checking it out!

Can you make out any marking on those spoons? I have found those exact shapes and could not figure out when they were made.

No markings besides an engraved W intial. Due to the age of these cellars and knowing when they were abandoned, I can say these are pre 1930. If I had to make an educated guess, it's probably late 1800s or very early 1900s

Love the Bell. Nice to see the powder flask also. I found one a couple weeks back. You definitely do not see them on the forum very often. Especially in that nice of condition.

What the diameter on the copper? Screams civil war token to me, or foreign maybe.

Congrats on a couple of great mixed bag hunts topped with silver. They don't get much better. I love the powder flask. HH Mark

Nice work on the cellar holes!

I love the powder flask. Been on my bucket list for a few years now.

I found a nearly identical bell last week. Does yours have any markings or identification?

Good digs

Pretty nice Conestoga bell.

No help with the coin. I had an idea but it didn't hold up.

Maybe you can gently tooth pick clean it to bring out a little bit more details and letters.

Ive been looking for a match for that coin/token since I posted yesterday. Could also be a trade token, may not be a token at all, hopefully we can figure this mystery out, could be a rare one. I hate digging unidentifiable coins

That powder flask is really cool! You're lucky to find both halves intact.
