    I found these two metal o-ring like objects at a mid to late 1700’s dig site. I have found over 30 buttons and 6 coppers, along with other odds and ends but have no idea what these might be. Click image for larger version.

    Not sure of the metal unless you can suggest ways of finding out. The second pic is of the stuff I have found there along with it, hope that helps. Click image for larger version.

    Not many sparkplugs in then1700s

    are they magnetic?

    They look brass or bronze so I'm still thinking Jewelery

    Not everything on a 1700's Site will be from the 1700,s
    unless the site has been in a Vacuum for 300 Years.

    sorry ! my uneducated opinion

    But I do find allot of Them, & That was what I was originally told they were.

    I hunt allot of picnic groves and ball parks, not from the 1700's

    The site WAS in a vacuum seal, I found all of this within 100 sq ft area. Plug rings or copper gasket was my first thought when I pulled them out of the dirt but it just doesn't fit in with the elements of the site. Thank you for your suggestions though. Click image for larger version.

    Also, back in the day, 18th century day that is, brass rings like that had thread woven through these like spokes in a wheel. They were used to hang curtains.
