    Dime Trifecta Complete, Fly Ring?, Anvil? Grape shot?

    Made it out yesterday for 2 hrs at an old site I have pounded, but wanted to try my small coil. Field was still too high, but hit the fringes.

    Im thinking this is a miniature anvil, or maybe it is some kind of brass farm hardware. Maybe a K makers mark.

    Also dug a deep 17 signal, usually falsing iron signal, and it was a round blob of rust, but too round to be a typical rusted nut. Brought it home and hammer the rust crust off. Maybe ball bearing or ordinance, site is where I have found Rev War buttons and Nova. Maybe a mm or 2 smaller than a quarter, but did remove a 1/16 -1/8 shell off rust.

    Thx! Luckily this site has very few modern era coins for a site that was lived in through the 1980s.
