    2 Indians, Gold Plate Cufflink, & Several Strange Bullets (ID needed)

    Got out today for the last time in awhile amid the farms of south central PA. Hunted a couple sites from the 1750s. The Indians are 1906 & 1882. Alongside the Indians I found a knapsack rivet & I think a Civil War .45 cal bullet. Not sure what the thing is with the PA keystone emblem. The gold plated cufflink probably dates to the mid 1800s and gave an Indian signal. The first site also yielded those strange (maybe .38 cal.) bullets. Need to know if they are worth anything because I stopped digging those signals and left at least 25 more in the ground...





    Thanks for lookin'

    I found a bullet like those along with two sharps ringtails and a standard .58 three ring. I finally found out it was a modern shotgun slug. Cool looking though! Great finds!

    They're too small to be shotgun slugs. For reference, the bottom row has a wheat penny in the middle. So they measure somewhere between .22 and .45 cal. My guess would be .32 or .35 cal. They were all found at a depth that would indicate they were fired 1880s-1900.

    Those are modern .38 wadcutter slugs. Don't let depth fool you, someone shooting into the ground will put them fairly deep. The one top left I think is either a 9mm or .40 S&W and the third one in the top row looks to be a jacketed .38 but it's pretty garfed up, so I'm not certain. They're all probably less than 30 years old.

    Disston hand saw medallion. I found one in better shape in Denver, mine is from the 1870s. Picture was taken and flipped due to lighting.
