This is the image of an item that was dug at a very old house site,  It has the eagle with 13 stars. The eagle has the arrows and olive branches in his talons, Below the eagle is a pair of pistols crossed, It is make like a powder flask but is smaller. Could it be a power flask for a pistol? The top is missing.
Find Id'd:
This item looks like a flash pan powder flask. It made it easier to place powder in the flash pans of the muskets with this smaller flask.Nice Find. Dan S.

 

I was searching for bullets in trees and came upon this strange coin.  it was em-beded into the tree about three quarters of the way in.  I carefully carved it out with my knife and took it home.  I can find no information on it what so ever.  Since I found this coin,  I have had good luck and everything is going great.  this is the best find of my life! Please send info about this coin if you know what it is to this email link. Thanks Replys

Made of cast brass, 2.5 inches diameter, 2 spun studs (similar to the reverse of the TN style CS buckle) on the reverse that are threaded. Beautiful mint green patina. Image depicts 2 eagles that have just captured a rabbit with a beaded line around the perimeter. My guess is that it is a clock pendulum.

 

Here is a pic of the badge/plate Brian found.  Think it may have been silver plated. On the reverse it has weld/rivet marks. It could have been attached to another piece of metal. Any help with id would be appreciated.
