    What is this brass and iron pieces?

    Went hunting for a few hours today and found a piece of a old scale, a spigot, V nickel, and some rivets. Having trouble with one brass piece tho. Also, what is the big and heavy iron piece? I assume it's a scale weight but not sure. It was found in Mississippi near the Mississippi River. Thanks in advance

    Thanks y'all I have found 4 different types of scales over the past 2 years in this site. I just went through my old finds and I was surprised to find the other broken half! I think that's spigot #7 too! It was 2 saloons, a gin, and a general store at this site.

    I forgot to mention these copper pieces. They were all together and are broken up pretty bad. I find copper like this a lot out there but these have little teeth. Kinda curios as to what this could have been. Dunno....

    First item looks like an old floor-mount door stop. Large iron item could be a window sash weight.
