Hello everyone. I haven’t been out in a few days so I decided to hit a yard that I have pounded in the past. I found a few things with a few questions to go along with it. First of all I found a few musket balls that I gave to the land owner who was happy to receive them.
The property also has a circa 1885 home that still remains. I found this flat button with a Best back mark. I also found this suspenders piece. Not sure if it belongs to the home or the Seminole War fort. Also found this bent up spoon with this pictured makers mark. Any help with the maker or age would be appreciated. My favorite find was this thimble with this writing on the Edge. I believe it says a token of friendship. I looked on line and didn’t see it on there. My last find was this brass piece that looks like the number 1. Any help with these finds would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

Hi, good finds. The 3 prong, brace?, buckle. How common are they there?
Iv only ever found 1 three pronged one here ever. Dozens of 2's.
Have I just been unlucky?
