    Can you say colonial? 8)

    Nice hunt. Looks like some shoe buckles mixed in.

    Maybe a halfpenny?

    And a strap guide.

    You for certain have a spoon mold there. You need to find the other half.

    Over at Old Salem the tinsmiths make pewter spoons regularly using spoon molds just like that one. The one you have may have been for pewter or silver. The style of the spoon is very, very old. Find the other one and you have one pricey artifact.

    If you did find the other half you could take it to Old Salem and ask them to cast a spoon from it for you, that would be cool!

    Thanks Carolina friend,I could only think that was what it was. Nothing like it found by me before. It was my only guess so thanks to you for your words on it.

    GREAT relics, that spoon mold is an outstanding find. From the handle type it looks to be quite an early one. I like the lock escutcheon also.

    Looks like a lot of very early treasure there timekiller
    That spoon mold is awesome.

    Here's a site with some great pics of molds and sample spoons - there is one described as a 17th Century table spoon, which has a similar shape to yours.
