I believe they are Yankee 3 ringers, might be from a Colt Peacemaker, mid 1800's.

I found these in a pond buried about 10" down in really hard pack sand. Shortly after I recovered them they oxidized.

I had a gun expert check them out, said they aren't worth much maybe a buck or 2 ea but still cool to find them. They came out after the musket balls.

      I knew my house was old, but just recently found out the owners had this property in 1850. So far no silver, or old coins even, but some interesting finds. I just bought a White's MX7 back in May, and haven't had the opportunity to use it a lot, but I'm giving it a workout lately.

      Here's a little somenthing my Danish friend Alan Farskov and a fellow detectorist recently dug up in their native Denmark.  
      When I was there a couple of years ago the best thing I found was an 1880's US Indian Head Penny - go figure.  Of course, I got to keep the penny.  The sword is "National Treasure and belongs to the Danish People - but I know Alan is both OK with that and proud of his contribution to his beautiful country's history.

      Thought I would hit it early this morning and go back to a spot I found a nice piece of gold and get me so more . But no luck  , four hours scanning tailing piles only produced this, what I think may be either a button or a part of a two piece belt buckle. Anyone have an ideas of what it is or was part of. Pretty sure its mid 1800's navy something.....pretty cool anchor and rope.

      My friend  (whom doesn't want to be identified ) found the hammer last year metal detecting.  He left it because it was no value to him.He heard recently they reopened the murder case. So he gave a call to the investigator.  Met with them on site and found it again for them.
