  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...

  16. ✅ SOLVED Lead Seal

    Wow! Thank you Bramblefind and Breezie. I had been unable to guess the correct spelling because some of the letters were missing or were disfigured and my knowledge of lead seals is limited. The expertise offered by the various members of this site is amazing. Thanks again for your help!
  17. ✅ SOLVED Lead Seal

    Good evening everyone, I located the lead seal pictured in the attachments. It is about the size of a dime. I feel it is a bag seal or bale seal but not a cloth seal. It is old enough that the lettering is difficult to read or non-existent in some cases. I found site that showed many images...
  18. What would a ring of the sites have been used for?

    Another possibility... Some older pieces of farm equipment such as grain drills had rings connected by lengths of chain that were drug behind the machine. Usually there was perhaps a foot of chain connected to a ring such as the one pictured, then another foot of chain and another ring. The...
