Thread: Last few hunts

    Last few hunts

    Haven't gotten out much but here are finds from last few hunts. Eyeballed a nice gun flint and little medicine bottle while digging holes. The copper on the right is a toasted William III. Pretty sure it is a 1699.




    Any guesses on what the black object on the left is would be appreciated. It says "6MM", and the slot is spring operated.

    I would have to agree with "CT" on this one , it looks very close to a Beretta elite II Co2 pistol magazine Beretta Elite II 6mm CO2 Airsoft Pistol BB Magazine (airarmsports.com)

    Thanks Gents....and thanks for the ID. I thought it might be some sort of handgun magazine but never considered CO2. Yep looking forward to the cooler weather Dan.

    Great finds! I especially like the fork on the left and the 18th century buckle. many buttons you have found! Is the right silver or arsenic bronze?
    Many greetings

    Thanks Menzl. The button on the right is tombac alloy. Mostly copper/zinc, but could contain other metals and semi-metals such tin, lead, arsenic etc.
