Forgot I had these in my pocket. Two finds from yesterday. The tube piece appears to be an early 20th C. lipstick tube.

The other is neat. I found it at the base of an old 19th C. rock foundation of a home site. Couldn’t find many good targets because the structure appeared to have been burned.
Triangle shaped tin with a 5 point star in the middle. Appears to have been attached, probably nailed to something. Maybe a decorative piece at one time.

Lipstick tubes are everywhere around here and Compacts always hope to find something stashed in there that star reminds me of the old Chrysler emblems the little ones that would go on the fender just a guess
