Thumbs up Found a few at the old camp...


Although the finds are getting slim these days I managed to pull a few more from the old camp site.

Buck ball, Sharps, round ball, and my first Teardrop (at least that's what I hope it is).

Any ideas on the mystery items at the top of the picture? Feels like it might be brass, I was thinking possibly an instrument part? Bugle, perhaps?

Good bullet finds. The big piece almost looks like a decoration on an iron fence rod. More photos of it?

Question More mystery item pics


Few more pictures of the mystery item; holes on the ends are different sizes. The small hole almost looks like it was square at one point in time.

That makes me really think it might be part of a fence then. Think of the short iron fences around houses that have a square lower bar, a piece like this in the middle, then a decorative bar coming from the top.

Fence part never crossed my mind b/c this place is in the middle of nowhere, but anything is possible. Appreciate the feedback.

It's the only thing in my head that sticks out so far. Any dump sites or old garbage nearby yet? I'll find odd ball stuff in my wooded sites and then stumble on a small antique trash pile at some point.

Nice assortment of finds. I have no idea what the big piece is though.
