Yeah- the flask was pretty exciting to find!!

The round things are lids/caps off old tins. 

Some will have writing on them and they were for the rifle powder tins and other tin canister type items.

The tin usually rusts away and sometime you only find the cap but on this trip I found the alloy spout and the cap still together.

Here are the tops --no writing on these "black powder stoppers"  1860's+

Great relics. I really like the powder flask too. The caps are interesting. I may have found those and threw them in the junk pile. Thanks for the little education.

Got me all excited about what might be hiding in my yard, lol

Old woman who lives behind me was actually born in my house and thinks there are or were anyway, some jars with coins/paper money buried there by what would be her grandfather.

Awesome!
That lock is Bad ass.
When you tumble the caps, can you post a close up  of the writing?

Love that kind of stuff.
Even typeface was elegant back then.

The red cans are beautiful too! Specially that last one.
