Hello everyone, I found these Items on what is rumored to be an old wagon road location. The trail was used in the late 1800's to travel to a fort in Canada. I'm wondering if anyone out there can help identifying them?

Last item (10 and 11) looks like it could be part of a two piece sash buckle maybe....?

Item 6 and 7 is a button, as you probably already know.

Item 8 looks like it could have came from a lamp/lantern.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 beats me, someone smarter than me should be around soon, and can help with this.

Oh and I see you are a recent joiner, so welcome to TNet and the madness. We have some highly knowledgeable members on here so you should get some more information on your finds soon.

Thanks, I think most of the iron would be impossible to identify unless someone knew wagons inside and out.
I was thinking the same on the lamp, the little piece with small gears probably raised and lowered the wick.
The Button looks very old, i'm not sure what it's made of, not magnetic so maybe silver?? ( anyone know how to tell if it is)
the silver piece buckle looking affair has very detailed design work both inside and out, looks to me like maybe a buckle off of a spur or horse bridle maybe??? I didn't want to try straightening it for fear it would break.

That could be parts of a saddle made of wood ?
