    Metal Detecting

    Maybe a leaf spring?

    Found on the bank of a creek. Area was a turn of the 20th century sawmill community in Southeast Texas.

    No center bolt. Metal is thin, not sure if rusted, or made that way. Leafs are held together by crimps on the outside edges.

    Might be a piece of metal banding.

    Maybe a barrel band or banding for shipping/ securing processed lumber

    Key-seal from a giant sardine can? Possibly carriage leaf spring.

    It's very possible it's a carriage leaf spring as Erndog pointed out, however with the piece lacking a center hole, I'm wondering if it's an ornamental piece for something, or like Joe-Dirt said it could be a piece of banding, if so I'm thinking it was just discarded after use... "D"
    "There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter." Ernest Hemingway

    ďFor he is Godís servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out Godís wrath on the wrongdoer.Ē Romans 13:4

    "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." Stonewall Jackson

    "Our God was my shield. His protecting care is an additional cause for gratitude." Stonewall Jackson
