    Seeing as where you are located (Baltimore) I will venture it might be the blade of an oyster shucking knife.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Currently in Mexico, item was dug in the central state of Jalisco
    Here is a pic of some of the items that were dug along side with the piece
    I would say the most modern will be the military buttons and should
    date 1830-1840s, the oldest piece would be a 1/4 real my friend dug
    dated 1759.

    Cool finds Lilo!! I agree it looks like a knife blade of some sorts, I thought Charlie nailed it since it makes sense based on Baltimore's history but then you through the "Dug in Mexico" curve ball so I got nothing for ya brother!

    What ever it is it would have been in a handle, not a shaft.

    If not an oyster shucking knife, then maybe an animal skinning knife.

    I think you may have found an arrow head.

    I passed by that place twice last week. Ain't nothing there, but one old mine shaft headframe that I saw. I believe it's an arrowhead made from an iron strap that were used on the old wooden barrels as aarc demonstrated. I read in a book where a indian scout described a battle where he got shot in the hip buy an arrow with an iron arrowhead and that the native Americans would utilize discarded scraps of iron to make arrowheads.
