ID help on a couple items.
Quote this message in a reply
Electro tub is still down till i pick up a new charger so i couldn’t get a good cleaning on them yet, but went ahead and gave them a light brushing to bring out a
few more of the contours of the items.
both items where pulled up just feet from several Brown bess or similar muzzle loader pieces that i have been digging up. so i was thinking they could be possible parts of the same gun. but i am not too familiar with all the parts. so any ID help or direction would help a lot.
thanks for peeking..

I know for a fact that they made bayonets for them and there are all different styles of them

the item that looks like a  " coat hook "  has a large square screw in the front
and was attached to what appeared to be wood.
i was thinking a pommel of some sort or the metal butt of a small muzzle loader.
it was pulled up in the exact same 4 ft square spot that i dug up
the trigger guard, ram rod, ram rod ferrule, and several other gun parts.
i first thought brown bess or similar musket, but the ram rod i found is short
so was thinking musket pistol .

i was thinking the same on the second item.
its a short one, i have seen them on short pistols as well as the larger rifles.
so im thinking a small hand gun bayonet from an old muzzle loader
