    Colonial relics?

    I found these things a little outside Liberty Hill South Carolina. I知 new to metal detecting and relic hunting but I find it fascinating and love learning and feeling the history. I just need help identifying things I find. I have a couple of ideas but I知 not sure. Click image for larger version.

    Thank you all for the input. I have so much fun exploring and finding these things that more insight on their history or backstory is exciting!

    The "VR" on the lock stands for "Victoria Rex", i.e. Queen Victoria who took the throne in 1839. She was queen a very long time.

    Not sure of the size, but from here it almost looks like a staple for fastening barb wire or fence wire to fence post.

    Keep going at it. After the iron is out, the coins should appear.
