I haven't even begun to identify any of this stuff yet. I was out today testing a new permission to see what it had to offer.

wow that's some great finds! Pistol looks similar to the S&W 32 my grandpa used to have. That horse is awesome!

Some super cool finds. I like the horse, Indian, and pistol. Very American finds. Looks like a very promising permission. Post when cleaned up too.

Pistol looks to be a .32 caliber double action Smith & Wesson Model 2, produced from 1880 to 1913.

Nice stuff, but what is it all. What is that long curved bar with chains and the long thing with the ring at the bottom?

Cool selection of finds.
The one that has 6 molds together is a "Gem or muffin" pan.
Can't really enlarge the photo enough to see if the maker is on the casting rim.
Here's some info from a collector site link that might help ID the age.
Restoration would be an easy on this one's it looks in great shape.

I'm wondering if that hunk of iron with a ring on top woud be a goat weight-if there is such a thing. It's too smal to be a horse weight.

I'd say that new place has a lot to offer. Those are some excellent relic finds.

Working on cleaning things up. I got this piece fairly clean, but it was mixed with iron and has stains on it that I can't get out. Not sure if it is silver or silver plate. It would help if I could ID it, but haven't been able to so far. Has a makers mark on the back that says Alpaca ..?.. Co. Pretty piece!

The red you see on it is residual Jewler's roughe.
