Last weekend I found a couple of new spots. I wouldn't tell where is the tree but I can show the fruits. Looks like colonial stuff (lots of old nails), but also Lenape territory. As always, I'll need your collaboration to ID some of the objects.

One of them in particular looks like a sort of axe or Indian artifact. I found a few similar photos on the web but I know ATS members know better.






This one had to be a nice one when it was in one piece. I'll keep it anyway, not too much glass in my collection.

Cool finds, what dates are the coins. Any sign of structures by the secret tree? I guess no video because of the classified location

The coins are just memorial pennies and one dime. Not too old but they are part of the bounty anyway. There used to be people living around in the 1700's.

The one up top looks like some kind a wedge to me. Any chance you can flip them all over and give us a picture from the other side ?

Is the one that looks kinda like a knob possibly a safe dial or more like the top of a canteen or other type container.

Seven nails three post 1920 wire nails. A 12 to 16 penny framing nail, a roofing nail, and a spiral decking nail . The remaining four are pre-1900 either hand forged made from iron bar before wire nails.

Top right looks like a leg to something like a wood-burning stove .

I think you are right about that one. First I thought it was a kind of handle but your theory makes way more sense.

Yes, I also think it's part of a canteen.

I love seeing what people find! So cool to find pieces from a time long passed. I have many antique items that I am thankful to have either inherited or found at thrift and antique shops or yard sales and flea markets. It must rewarding digging things up and discovering treasures on your own. You never know what you might find. The mystery of not always knowing what an item might be is half the fun in your discovery. Cool!

Exactly. Those intriguing objects are the best. They trigger your imagination.

Yup that helped .

It’s not a wedge . Lol

Can you tell whether it’s cast iron or just iron .

That would help date it .

It's made of stone.

I searched "Indian stone wedge" and found this photo on internet of an object that looks almost the same. I think it's a match.

Is the triangular piece also stone?
If so, both it and the other stone piece could be mattock heads. Used by native Americans for planting and weeding corn, beans and squash.

I vote for bacon as well, but it's likely this:

I believe the triangular one is a big piece of pottery. It's shiny, so probably belonged to the settlers.

I didn’t know it was stone. That image was probably a match.

Since it’s made out of stone I would also venture to say it could possibly be a Native American plow blade .


Which was my first thought .


The one to the left resembles a old clay sewer pipe .
