New site today(odd find)
Hit a new site today didn't hit it big but had fun, a little clad and 3 wheat, 1925, 41 and 19-0 mower hit the last one. I did find something that's pretty cool but have no idea what it is, if you have any idea let me know. Thanks for taking a look.

Appears to be a valve. I have found one of these, although not as ornate. I think they may have been used for gas lighting kinda like a gas fireplace. That is only my guess but should be pretty close. Nice one too.

Looks like an ornate gas fitting. Neat!

Yeah its a gas valve that goes inside of a house along the baseboards they connect to gas heaters some are plain some are very fancy... I have found several of them and I have put them in a rock tumbler and they shine up quite nicely... they usually are very dirty and dull... I find my around old home sites.

Nice, I like the Celtic symbol inside the square on the valve. Looks like a fun & successful hunt.
