    More from the orange plantation

    Got out Friday with CCDAMEEK to search for more treasure. Found lots of FRM (firearms related material) as usual, but scored my second silver from the place. A 1917s Winged Liberty dime(Mercury). I've been spending time trying to ID some cartridges that have kept me from posting. Still haven't really nailed some down so help is appreciated. Chime in if you can ID. I'll post some pix and measurements.
    Here's the dime:Click image for larger version.

    Here's an old Rifle cartridge 45/70 made in September 1879 by the Frankford Arsenal:

    Here's one I haven't ID'd yet. The case is almost rimless and belted although I see absolutely no markings on the base. It measures .51" across the lip and is about 1 1/16" long. Haven't found this one yet.:

    I did find some other things that didn't make the shots. Little bit of trash and a partial suspender clip. Had a ball! Maybe Chip will post up his lot for that hunt too.
