The below items found at same dig site. Need help identifying.
I think other round object may be smashed bullet with holes punched in it. It also has lines scratched on it, possible home made necklace. Other two items brass.

First item is the tongue of a tongue and wreath buckle. I also see a fragment of a spur in the last pic. Maybe a homemade heel plate too but not if it's lead.
