    Gotta love that Crotal bell, and that coin is beautiful! You also got an interesting variety of harness buckles, etc.

    Is there a date on the wick adjuster wheel of the lantern?

    Congratulations on your new permissions .. Good luck at those sites!

    Thanks for your post my friend.
    I don't think I've ever found a crotal bell made of tombac metal before.
    Most of the bells I find in my area are cast bronze.

    Silver is always better then bronze Arg, but beggars can't be choosers.

    Thanks for your post creskol.
    I always look at the patent dates on thumb wheels, as they're sometimes a good indication to the age of the sites.
    One is 'P&A 1872', I pretty sure the other one is 'United States 1862'... so a #2 size '4-prong' burner and a #1 size 'flange/lip' burner.
    These were both flat wick burners, unfortunately they're very chewed up from the farm plows.
