Great hunt and finds congrats on the Indians and cuff link, I think the one thing is an emblem for a hand saw.

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.

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
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.
