Hey guys need your help on this one. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I got back To my Seminole War camp around 11 o clock. I’ve been trying to dig some iron signals lately. My first signal was a strong iron signal under this huge pine tree.
The distal portion appears to be about a 54 caliber size and the other end has no opening but these connecting portions. It’s only about 2 and a half feet long and the entire piece is hollow to near the proximal end. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Now a bit of restoration work needs to be done-the big ?? on which way.

I hunted for a few more hours after finding the gun barrel and found a dragoon button and a silver acorn pendant similar to one I found a couple months back.
Thanks for looking
