    Colonial Home Site/Church Site. Couple Of Mystery Items?? Need Help With ID

    Me and my brother have recently gained permission for a new site that has provided us with relics and coins from anywhere from 1700's to 1800's. We are not positive whether it was a home site or church site and we figure it has been hunted several times over the years. Coins include a 1868 Shield Nickel, and a 1864 IHP. Also, wick raiser from oil lantern circa 1860's. Other relics and buttons are definitely 1700's.

    The first mystery item I would like some help id'ing is what could be a Saddle Shield or Badge? Maybe a badge for the side of rear stock of an old muzzle loader of the era? This field has seen farm equipment over the years and I had to bend several finds back into place. Unfortunately this relic broke in several pieces due to this fact, but still looks interesting.
