civil war era tent grommets. other odd brass pieces

couple hours in my colonial/civil war era site.
first item is an odd little half round brass thingy , no idea what it may have been, but it is pretty interesting.
then the next item is a tiny brass piece with a crown and W.P. on one side and what looks like OO in the other side. any idea who the Crown and WP represent ... ??? .
next is a small 4 holed pewter button. and half of a flat button.
a small two slot draw reed, obviously not a harmonica so if anyone knows what it went to ... thank you .
a flattened piece of copper plating, a few fired and a nice dropped round ball.
an odd screw cap to something with a hole in the top.
and grabbed the piece of bottle just because i liked the very old top. the lip was separately attached, and really old, wish i could have got the whole bottle.
and some shell casings and shot gun brass. and a couple large pieces of lead ( wheel balances found on a trail home ) and two links to a hand forged chain .
Last photo, i noticed some text on the other small brass piece as well ... ???

Thank you .
I think the 2 slot reed board goes to an accordion. from what i can find they have the same 2 slot reed boards. most sound tines on a music box stick out so they can make contact with the roller, and would likely be on the same side ..
couple pics down on this page ...

just my guess ....
