    couple of ??????

    well got out today been super busy for the past week but here they are a plie of pull tabs, a piece of what i think used to be a spoon some clad and a niagra falls keepsake and a couple of i dont knows lol, the niagra falls thing is the one with the hole in the middle and on the back i think it says keep his and youll never be broke? but not sure, i dont know if its silver or aluminum came out shiny but its heavy and its not very think it is actually kinda thin, the other thing is made of copper ithink and it looks like a mini top hat? dont know and the other thing looks like some kind of latch along with all the other trash and before i left the park i threw away a pile of pull tabs so i found alot of pull tabs today not bad for a 2 hour hunt . HH all!! the ones im interested in is the one that looks like a latch, the small top hat, and the niagra falls Click image for larger version.

    the hat looking piece I think might be the center cap from a toy wagon wheel

    Agree on the wagon wheel cap. I remember pounding them back on my wagon! ( Although they were probably used on other wheeled objects.)

    "One tradition Mr. Adams started with Troop 54 decades ago is the handing out of silver dollars to new Eagle Scouts. Several Eagle Scouts at Mr. Adams' birthday party said the silver dollars were almost as coveted as the Eagle Scout rank itself.

    Mr. Adams said it started out as a small gesture.

    "In those days, you could get silver dollars at the bank," Mr. Adams said.

    "I figured I would be a wiseguy, and when I gave it to them I said, 'Keep this, and you'll never be broke.' "

    The tradition grew to be much more than that; Eagle Scout Ryan Hacker said Mr. Adams led by example.

    "It's a legacy of giving," Mr. Hacker said.

    "It's something to strive for. I remember seeing other Scouts getting their silver dollar, and I thought, "When do I get mine?'" Printer Friendly Version

    The little copper deal reminds me of a tea light holder it would have set in wooden base. (tea light is small candle) Also the latch is an internal part to a latch so probably will be hard to get an exact I.D.

    One of the first things I ever found with my BFO machine way back in the late 60's was one of those penny good luck pieces,
    keep me and never go broke. Mine has a penny in it, and looks a lot like this one.

    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    The candleholder idea is a good possibility too......

    If the little "hat" shaped piece is indeed an axle cap to retain a wheel, it should have a few tiny dimples or cleats to help keep it fastened to the axle shaft. Almost all the ones I've seen were steel however, but I guess they could be made of copper too. The aluminum horseshoe shaped item with the hole in the middle is indeed a souvenir piece that once had a one cent coin in the middle. I've found many of those through the years.

    Your little "tophat" piece appears to be a finger pull for a sliding pocket door.
