Return to the woods a detour took me past. Key spill, 4 silvers and another Amber bottle , but a lot older than last time.

Sometimes I get on a site and theme presents itself. This time it happened to be keys, silver and big amber bottles. The dirt is rough around the ruins though so the mercs are chewed. One is a 1926 the other has no date but a Denver mint mark obviously a 1916d 😆 Surprised the 1944p war nickel isn't chewed up. The little trime sized coin I'm pretty sure broke via my shovel 🤬. I'm just happy it wasn't a trime. It's a 1932 80% silver South African 3 pence. It is super thin. Not at all rare for that year. It's worth basically scrap but hey it's something different. On the way I tripped over the killgore avenger cap gun and all those elgin keys. Near the keys I dug a few clock plates and accidentally hit a surface dump. Made a mental note to open it up when I had more time. Only whole bottle is 1890s Ozomulsion 8.5 inch variation. Saved by the roots keeping it pitched so no water got in it. Was a chore getting it free.

Marble and brass wedding band came from indian spill site.

Ceramic shard, spoon and pressed lead flower pattern item came from a creek I'll go to when it floods. Lot of shards though I can't find the source. Not loaded with good detector finds but if you u detect in knee deep water or less stuff comes out.

Anyone know what the pressed lead thing is?

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.
