Hello everyone. It looks as though I’ve got almost everything out of the lot I’ve been working. I was able to find a few things along with a head scratcher.
The head scratcher is what appears to be a Soviet piece. I have no clues what it is or what the inscription says. Any help would be appreciated.
I also dug a period flat button and a couple cast brass square nails. I believe they are period to the 1820s. Also the extra small 4 hole flat flower button.
Thanks for looking and happy hunting to all.

It looks like cyrillic alphabet but not Russian that I can tell. lso if you flip the image so it isn't mirrored you'll notice the sickle opens to the right. Not like anything I've seen on USSR stuff, I have a large Soviet propaganda collection. The third element after the hammer and sickle I'm not sure what it is. North Korea uses a paint brush in addition to the hammer and sickle. I'm stumped like you. Not sure if there is a convention on which way the sickle opens.

I don't think it's Hebrew - it's either Russian or Greek, some kind of Cyrillic script....but looks backwards in the pic.
I'm 100% certain it's not Russian, doubt very much it's Greek. Here"s the Hebrew alphabet, you can see the similarities
