    Pistol butt plate? Percussion cap tin?

    Hello All,

    i dug these two items recently and was wondering if they are what I think they might be. I'm particularly interested in the thin brass tin/button face with "BLAKE * O___" on it.

    It was so thin, I thought perhaps percussion cap tin. Its certainly 19th c. Wish there were more of it for a full name.

    That "Blake O" piece is driving me nuts! Something that bold and pretty should be easy to track down.

    The round piece with three holes in it looks strikingly similar to a throttle butterfly in a carburetor, similar to this one but I have seen larger ones for sureClick image for larger version.
