The iron thing is a "staple" used to build the beds of horse and mule drawn wagons. I wonder how it got bent in different directions?...d2

Prolly was bent over that way so it wouldn't pull out or split the wood if it tried. Done that myself with things like that many times.

The 2 round items look to be chainmail trivits.

thanks everyone the two round items were in the same hole and look as if they where attached brooch maybe? the musket ball would date from late 1700s- mid 1800s, and it looks to have been loaded then pulled , the iron staple is dead on, and here is the pic of the metal ring forgot to post it
