    Found at civil war farm, cast iron lids or doors , strong box????

    What was these cast iron lids used for, we found 5 different kinds of flat cast iron lids or doors and one has a pin with it. So it has to be a door of some kind. We found pad locks and thought these could be strong boxes or shipping containers for money. Click image for larger version.

    have you looked into not wood stoves like for heating but wood stoves/ovens for cooking?

ID:	1852665 the other 4 are only 1/8" thick cast iron. If they are from a stove is that thick enough to hold heat and why so many at one site , we believe there are a lot more.

    Looks like parts from a cast iron stove.
    They were thin so as to reduce shipping costs.
    Most everything in the old days had to be packed in on mules at some point...packers charged by the pound...

    Strong boxes would never be made of such thin, brittle type of metal. They are most likely cooking stove metal as stated before.
