    A brass piece that was found a foot down and I have no idea what it is

    I found this today when I went and detected my field of dreams and nightmares but when I was going to the truck I got a 32/33 and tight I thought it was another 8 reales Instead I got this mind bender. Its brass and it appeared to have iron in between the bottom part the left side has two hours going up and down in the L and the other one has the numbers 876. There also looks like they had some green paint on it which makes me ask why would they paint brass? They had more than two obvious on the left side it broke off what the hell is it? Im going to put it on there as wellAttachment 1863785

    Yup, bolts to the sickle bar and the triangular shaped blades run under these pieces. Originally horse drawn equipment but I've seen them hooked up to the draw bar of tractors.

    Typically called a sickle bar guard. Check some of these out: sickle bar guards

    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.
