Here's the result of a couple of recent hunts I didn't get the chance to post.

Got my first Royal Navy purser button from the War of 1812 It's a good addition to the collection as I have never seen them before.

An other ''Two and the Hook'' Revolutionary War 29th Regiment of foot. The smaller ones for some reason always seem to be bent.

Great finds. Last item reminds me of a cleaning attachment to a ramrod for a muzzle-loader.

Nice bunch of finds, I've seen a few of those Navy Purser buttons posted but I can't remember if I have one!

''An early buckle of the unknown to me type'' - Its a horse harness buckle, circa 1850.
