    Pic 3 is some sort of patent tag for what? Has "PAT APR 11 93" and maybe some more numbers to the upper right (or bottom right based on the orientation of the picture).

    The first is a crimp clasp to permanently hold two items together (like strips of leather) You are correct on the Patent tag and of course a penny!

    I think it's a crimp clasp to hold 2 pieces of leather together on a rifle sling. (shoulder strap).

    The other guys have already identified your first relic.
    Your second piece may have been part of a harmonica... but your find is pretty small.

    Here's one I found last year,

    Dave - that first attachment looks quite similar. So a tag off a harmonica? I have found quite a few pieces of reeds.

    Thanks all for the responses. I will mark this Solved!
