I had the opportunity to hunt a pasture behind an old home in town over the last week......lot's of finds and then it started snowing....groan. Some reins guides, Ox knob and a cool old twisted handle butter cutter....not sure the age, broken at the twist in the handle, found the blade first and the handle later on about 30 feet apart. Hefty square nut wrench, lantern bits etc....

Several old buckles and tools. A couple rings, while of no value, did cause my blood pressure to surge when I uncovered them.

Old earring and some type of decorative stamped metal something or other....

I was told the button is likely a general service officers button.......Post CW ? not sure.

Hoping the weather improves I'd really like to go back and give it a more thorough search..... Thanks for looking.
