Had an hour and half this afternoon at the location where on Tuesday I dug the NY Militia officer's button and the brass closure pin from an ammunition pouch.

Got four more relics and the last one was down 9 inches.

Dug in order: a small brass rivet IMG_6855.JPG


then what looks like a carved roundball IMG_6857.JPG IMG_6858.JPG IMG_6859.JPG


got a Corbin Cabinet Lock Co key, New Britain, Conn. IMG_6853.JPG


Last good target was deep, 9 inches, and it is a mystery piece IMG_6860.JPG IMG_6862.JPG IMG_6861.JPG

Congrats on your finds,
The mystery piece looks like possibly a brooch the you were able to put a picture inside of.

Interesting finds McCDig. At first I thought "heart thingy" was a picture frame you would put a picture of a loved one and lay on a ladies make-up table. But, I noticed a little hole on the bottom - must be for something else...

Very cool finds, congrats!

The broach may have had an enameled portrait inside. That's an image painted on metal with a ceramic paint and then fired.
