pulled up a tiny colonial era watch key. it has a crossbow and quiver of arrows at the bottom and lions head at the top of one side, and other designs on the other side. slightly bigger than a dime.
also pulled up a fancy bronze piece, looks to have been a brooch or hat pin with a floral pattern.
another gilt button the same as one i pulled up a month or two ago.
a small flat button ( shank came of in travel home ) ( backmark reads : Plated with an eagle holding arrows ) very cool backmark ...
a thick brass ring not sure what it went to.
possibly another piece of a brass trigger guard.
another round mini lead musket ball.
i fired civil war era minie ball.
and a few other odd pieces.
Break time is over im heading back out for round two ...

Update :
after peeking at the tiny charm looking thingy, it is not a crossbow at the bottom.
it is a bow and quiver of arrows with a lions head on the top surrounded in a wreath.

I don't know... A medal clasp? For archery? I thought they had blackpowder at least? Must be very, very old and probably bronze. Is it magnetic? The soup thickens.....

Ed

it is bronze, and non magnetic .
this is the second bronze medallion type object i have found, and one silver religious pendent in the past four months from this site.

Round ring appears to be a brass barrel ring, attaches to the end of the wooden stock on a flint lock rifle or pistol .
