Today was a great day, a continuation of yesterday so to speak.
I dug the GAR Medal ( thank you to those who told me what it is/was) along with several other items which I will attach to this post. Some items were found yesterday like the clay pipes & buttons. I'm very curious about the relic that (to me) looks like a gun trigger. Any ideas?? Thank you & happy digging. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

I would like to say a trigger, too, but somehow, I can't make that mechanism function as one. It might be a trigger assembly for something, but I don't think it's to a firearm.

It kind of reminds me of an older style archery release thatโ€™s got pieces missing. Iโ€™m not sure how long mechanical releases have been around. Possibly this trigger is too old to be that.

I was also told it might perhaps be a trigger from an old flintlock pistol/rifle?
Hey, I'm going to get the old saw mill out today, I'm pretty excited about that. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Not from any flintlock firearm, but good luck with the saw mill.

Thank you so much for letting me know, I certainly appreciate it. Also, thank you for the luck, I'm going to need it. I'm attempting this mission by myself & I'm not very big or strong, but I'm mighty with a lot of determination. ๐Ÿ˜‚
