I wish I could figure out how to get my words in before the pics but I guess for now I’ll explain down here… found these two brass items in the woods at an Indian trade site.
The spot is very isolated and not near any structures. It’s produced very few items even on zero discovery and full sensitivity. It has produced two lightning bolt awls, a brass trade ring, some copper scrap from a kettle, a handle lug from a kettle, part of a trigger guard, part of a trigger mechanism, a trigger, and three screws that likely also came from a gun
Now I found these two items very near the site, just on the fringe. The grommet reads H N Little and the brass cap deal had the two bits of fabric inside.
I have two other spots that produce trade items in the immediate area and i suspect they all may have been a single site until a sandstone quarry in the middle broke it into 3, I’ve got a date around 1830 on my site/sites
Closest thing I can find on the grommet thing is a boot company from Georgia maybe the other was a shoelace cap of sorts? But the timeframe is off, and Georgia is a long way from se Kansas.
Anyone recognize these items or knows what would use a grommet with a post across it? It’d be great if they were trade items but I’m suspecting maybe a bit of modern trash came in somehow
