    Question Could Someone ID These Finds For Me?

    I detected an amazing spot today with numerous amounts of awesome finds. Among them, were these neat little things which I can't identify myself.
    The first unidentified item is made out of a copper-alloy, weighs 9 grams and has a width of 66 mm:

    I'm very uncertain about what it could be but it looks like the holes are meant for nails to go through so maybe it's a heel plate of some sort.
    The other two finds were these two little items. The cylindrical item is made out of lead, weighs 13 grams and is 32 mm tall. And the larger copper-alloy object weighs a whopping 34 grams and is 23 mm wide:

    Pretty sure the first item is a shoe toe plate. Don't have a clue on the other two.

    The green piece looks to be a broken flatware handle of some sort. Maybe post a pic with something in it for scale. I’m metrically illiterate sooooooooooo

    With the pointed front and concave back end, I believe the
    lead cylindrical item is an early lead bullet.

    Congrats friend, I'd research bronze age tools and weapons, check out your local museums. The patina on that piece is particularly rich.

    If it is a purse, it would be a tiny one .. the piece is only 2 1/2 inches wide.

    I wouldn't think so because it is quite unsymmetrical.

    Thank you for the suggestion. The place I detected on only stretches back to the 16 to 1700's so there is no possibility for it to be that old.

    Do you really think the lead object is a lead stylus? I'm not certain for how long they've been used but they seem to be rather old. The area I'm detecting on is only stretching back to the 16 to 1700's.
    I was also thinking that the copper object could be the end of a 1800's spoon handle.
    Best regards
