    Artifacts...?

    Hi,

    I live in MA, and recently visited a site that was used to train US Army troops during the revolution (during this period, the militia), the civil war (they used this spot a lot, WW1, and, to a much lesser extent, WW2. As you can see, generally, there is a lot of history here.

    Anyway, I found each of these things and have no idea what they are/ what war or time period they are from.

    Can someone help me? Thanks!

    P.S- the Circle thing has letters on it. From what I can make out, it says "American five inch."Click image for larger version.

    In the middle picture on the bottom you are holding a "stripper clip" for loading ammo into a rifle. Probably WWI or maybe WWII...d2

    It's hard to be certain from seeing just one photo of it, but I think d2 is correct that the long flat brass object is a stripper-clip (like the type which held 5 cartridges for the World War 2 US Army's M-1 Garand rifle).

    The long pointy iron object with a broken spiral wire on the handle looks like a damper-control from the smoke-pipe of an old cast-iron woodburning stove.

    I suggest you post photos of these finds in the What-Is-It forum here at TreasureNet.
