    Things I need help to ID, very weird!

    I need assistance to identify these items found on an Island in SE mass in a cove with oak trees and littered with coral, bones and old broken bottles. I went to PCGS and Heritage and Stacks and even a coin shop. They all say melted solder,or coins gold/silver but not yellow enough. I checked the University of Notre Dame's Colonial coins and wrote them many times as some seem to me like Sommer Islands coinage of 1615. The III pence is in my bank box and I will try to send photo of it too, soon. Also found was a big white rock in shape of pig that has rainbow/prizm qualities. Thank you in advance for any help. My ancestors include: Richard Warren and Lt.Jonathan Delano{De La Noire} of Plimoth 1592-1628 and 1647-1720 latter was at Kidd's trial in 1700. My cousin is on the present dime! Coin shop said Geo.III Rex coin is so common it is worthless.

    THX Jeff of PA you have been very helpful, I think I learned to post pictures and I am in 4 years of state/fed retirement. I used total discrimination and all gave good target tone. aluminum sounds like rusty nails, ie choppy chatter. I miss Rod Serling a lot and sometimes this site takes his place? I went today, and saved all that made silver signals. The surf is up! I picked up a lot of new fishhooks too, nasty ones for kids feet, and filled 6' holes from boom baby people.

    The horn is ffrom a steer there is to much curve to be a whale's tooth, on the big pic lower left the second spear head in, if it has is a slight glaze to it , it is a Calusa spear head, they fired there spear heads to shatter when they were used to rip organs and more blood loss.

    I think he found in in Mass. If you are referring to the Calusa of Florida, they had very little flint or rock if any unless they traded for it from other tribes, it would be used for ceremonial purposes. The Calusa used bone antler and shark teeth for weapons, not flint..

    Dont I wish I could find arrowheads here. But unfortunately the Calusa had no flint quartz or any other rock. ...only coral rock. Where did you read this?

    I dont know much about steer horns but if it is like the ones I have , it would be very hollow and lightweight. A tooth would be stronger and heavier.

    Thanks for any help, 20 years ago Heritage told me I had gold / silver like melted solder or coins, electrum? I sent them small pieces that have x p and c p. Stack's are very snobby. I found the rock with an X chiseled on it which I was sitting on for 30 years before I noticed. There are oak trees, none hollow with one limb cut off, nearby in a little cove hideaway, with pieces of coral in sand and maybe human bones,maybe someone that drowned? and broken old bottles. I will try to photo the III pence SI when I go to my bank box someday soon. It looks different from red book but has the four pellets in front of forelegs with pellet in the middle, Like #5 dice, Maybe an unknown variety? idk reverse has boat with x like flag{s}? and large S to left, large I to right of vessel. Was that old olive green color on mahogany brown and took years in olive oil to become readable, and looks very old from my long experience with copper/brass. Anyone ever seen electrum?
