    3 items I'm curious about

    The first item is metal, 4 1/2 inches long, and seems to screw into something. The base seems to have been ornate and it appears to have been painted at one time. I'm thinking something off of a carriage that might have guided the reins. Second item is about 2 1/4 inches long, is metal, has ridges and I believe was once red. Also there is threading on the inside about 3/4 of an inch up. There is lettering that says ( I beleive) UNIVERSAL VEBKLYN, the rest is missing. It also has a US Pat that is missing most of the number I can make out 1905-S-P.
    Third item is clear plastic, kind've decorative. It's hard to describe. Hope there are some suggestion.
    My large cent is a 1844. The 44 looks strange. Does anyone have a suggestion on who to have look at it to decide if it is one of the onest that was marked 1881 originally?

    Only problem with the valve stem cover, is that this piece is 2 1/4" long and about 1/2" in diameter. That's a BIG tire

    I agree with timekillers ID. The old Model T valve stems were long. Not quite 1/2 inch. It probably looks 1/2 inch dia because its smashed.

    oops I didnt realize it was a large cent in the picture for comparison. I would have to agree, the OPs smashed cap found is 1/2 inch dia or over. Did I say that I agree?

    I would agree that in the 1st picture it is a stirrup. An interesting find.

    The threaded piece is part of a lightning rod insulator. It would have screwed into the wall of a house or barn and had a glass or ceramic insert to hold the wire.

    Thanks Biccy, I've dug a few of them here, but I couldn't find any of mine for a pic. I google image searched and found some really neat looking ones though. I think I'll be keeping my eyes out for some of the glass ones from now on.

    This really looks quite similar. The only difference being the one I found is 2.25 tall. Maybe just a different model. Thanks for all of the info.
