  1. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Grooved Lead Object

    Hello! One more item that I need help with this morning. This piece is dense, non-magnetic and appears to be lead. As you can see from the images, there is a groove or slot in one end. There appears to be some iron oxidation in the bottom of the groove. The item's base is slightly oval with...
  2. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Brass Hanger

    Good Morning, I've got another find from the farm site. I am thinking it must be some device used to hold or hang another item. Although is seems to have some iron-oxidation on the surface, it is non-magnetic. It is quite heavy for its size and a small scratch seems to show gold color, so I...

  4. ✅ SOLVED Horstmann Eagle Button Phila

    Very nice button! What would you call the thread-like material above the grommets? I am specifically interested in those parts that look somewhat like lead / gray metal pieces attached to the strings. I found a similar gray metal, lead-like piece. Don't have an image at the moment.
  5. ✅ SOLVED Quartz Base

    Happy Monday Everyone, I surface collected the base shown in the attachment while detecting along a row of recently planted pines. It was so clear that I thought it was a piece of glass at first. The break on the top appears as if it might be relatively recent, so I plan to return and see if...

  13. Daguerreotype

    Good Evening, I recently recovered the two items pictured in the attachments on an 1850s era farm site. The item shown in the first two images appears to be a frame for a daguerreotype (?) perhaps. The second pair of images show what I believe is a copper plate. Could someone comment on my...

  15. Reins Guide?

    Good Afternoon Everyone, I recovered this item from a farm site dating from the 1850s in central Georgia. My first thought was reins guide, but most of the examples I have found have been circular or oval shaped. I was hoping for some expert opinions. Thank you and stay safe.
