Iron knuckles I found metal detecting not 5' from a open pocket knife. I did not think it was from civil war period till I found it in a relic identification book.

Found buy a open pocket knife too! My guess hand to hand happened or it was a confederate soldier when they surrender threw it where the union wouldn't get it.

I,m confused but I don,t worry about it!
I found the iron knuckles metal detecting. I did not know they were from the Civil War till I stumbled across it in a Civil War relics identification book that I bought.
