    Those are some super nice finds. I just joined the forum today because I had to comment on your boot pistol. I found the exact pistol here two years ago. It was in the middle of my grandfathers corn field here in central New York. I took the barrel to a local gunsmith and he found marks indicating it was made in Belgium in the early part of 1850. As an after thought in the same field I also found spanish reales and some musket balls.

    Mine was on a homestead, between where the stone laid where the front door would of been and the root cellar. I also found 140+ buttons ,11 large cents, 2 US box plates, 1 breast plate, 10 mini balls , and lots of household items. 250+ items all together. The Belgium boot pistol was my favorite though.
