I finally got permission to detect an early 1800's farmhouse today. Apparently one of the former owners thought it would be cool to "plant" his beer cans on the property--probably at the very spot he finished off the contents. And he must have finished off quite a few--they were everywhere! After digging number 29 and placing it in a barrel to recycle, I beg to differ with his notions--it was NOT cool, not cool at all! Despite all these false alarms, i did manage to dig a few brass items, the best of which are pictured in this post. They are definitely not early 1800's, maybe not even 1900's, but I submit them here to request your opinions as to what they are and how old. I believe the two piece with several slots to be from a military school and the square one with tongue possible near the Civil War, but these are just guesses, and I haven't a clue what the third one is! Any help greatly appreciated!

ya never know why people do things ? if hes married prolly just hidin the evidence from the wife ? nice of u to recycle for him though.
 

I have been finding planted beer cans and other cans on beaches here forever.

Especially after spring break...

the under age drinkers are part culprits... drinkers on no alcohol beaches are the others... and yet plain ole litterers are the rest.
 

The beaches around Mississippi are full of them
 

Very interesting relics, congrats! :occasion14:

Agreed! Looks like he could have taken them somewhere else where she couldn't see them though!

Sad state this world is in right now.
 

That doesn't sound like a very nice garden ! (In terms of having to dig them). Nice finds.
