    New Cavalry finds WHEEEEEEEE!!

    I got started early yesterday...really, really early. First I stopped off at the property owners' house to let them know I was there and chatted for a few minutes. Then, off to dig.
    Well, all I can say is: It was a long, hot day but totally worth it!!
    I found many spent deer rifle casings but in between finding those I came home with some sweet finds.
    I found an ox shoe, (which I gave to the property owner along with a .50 unspent pistol round and a knapsack holder) more unspent rounds, 5 knapsack holders, a Cavalry horse shoe & quite few two and three ring minie's.
    I also dug up what I believe to be a Cavalry tent stake which was still driven completely into the ground. It took forever to get it out in one piece.
    But the find of the day came around mid-afternoon at about two inches deep. A Civil War/Cavalry era Eagle "C" Button. Yeah!! That was indeed a thrill.
    The bottom is a collection of "What is it's?" which I will also post in the appropriate section.
    Thanks for looking. HH

    Item two is a tuning key for guitar/banjo, doesn't appear too old but I could be wrong

    I've seen lots of tuning keys but never a brass one. Are you sure?

    I'm not so much concerned about the composition as much the shape. Anyone can make a tuning key out of brass if they prefer it, but I could always be wrong

    the rivet looking part with cloth goes with the knap sack hook ---its the part of the knapsack ( the catch) that the knapsack hook loops around * to hold the knapsack shut.

    looks like you got the metal catch parts to 4 knapsacks there bud.

    When I was mush younger, I used to be a horse shoer. Mules and horses have different shaped feet, and the pictured shoe looks like a mule shoe to me. Doesn't mean it isn't associated with the cavalry, mules pulled cavalry wagons and were also packed.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.
