Hey everybody! I returned to my old house seat to do some more sifting. No brass buttons today, but plenty of other ferrous and non-metal finds. I found a few nice easily recognizable relics, like the antler eating utensil handle, button hook, and two tone fork. I had a record amount of stoneware, porcelain, bone, and colonial pottery shards. I unfortunately had to leave them behind as there was too much to carry. I found a strange handle- looking piece of iron that I swear I have seen before, but I can’t pin it down to a particular relic. I also found what looks like two iron buttons, but don’t seem to have holes to run a thread through. One has a plus shape in the center, similar to how a screw would, with dots around the edges. It also has what looks to be a broken pin attachment in an indented spot on the back of it. My final odd relic is a rock that looks like a pestle to a mortar and pestle, but I’m not entirely certain. I know that this type of formation can form naturally, which it very well could have, but the location this was found in and the shape/texture make me believe otherwise. Thanks in advance for any assistance with these relics!
