    Found on property dating to 1860

    I found these a few weeks ago just before I had my surgery. The property dates back to 1860 but no coins were found older than the 1980ís.
    I suspect the property has been hit hard in the past.

    Any ideas on age and what these items might be?

    The hook thing is a window latch.

    The crushed brass tube thing may be a vesta or match safe.

    I have dug a few of those brass tube things in the past but was never able to figure out what they were. When i found this one i figured i might get some input. Thank you for a possible direction to go in.

    Pretty sure I see old hat/coat hooks with acorn finals. The mounting parts are broken off.

    Agreed... I would bet a "hall tree" / "hall stand"... who knows just a nice coat rack / plaque.
