    Wow... some really interesting finds....Most of which, I have no idea what function they performed. Some nice points, assume they were either picked up or exposed in a dig. Thanks for the pictures... Cheers, RickO

    Are those mouth harps? Are the metal cones tree taps for maple syrup? Nice assortment of relics. This is why I dig also. Peace Roy

    Jaw Harps .. Brass/Copper and Steel. Steel are the rare ones//.. The cones made of copper are from copper kettles. They were cut and formed and worn in the hair and on the clothing. Copper arrowheads,, lead chips made from musket balls flattened and formed with a hole .. I have one with a bead in the center of the hole. The fox pendent is a beauty formed from a copper kettle super item. All the rings are identified as Fur Trade Rings but still waiting for the IHS ring. The silver items are fur trade silver ... Pendants, earrings, nose rings and copper beads cone shaped and used for "Looking Good" Bling Bling. .. 2nd pic.. Musket balls, and more bling of silver also a steel/iron formed scarper.

    You certainly have a target rich area you search. Quite the variety of finds. A lot of history in those pictures. Cheers, RickO

    Really nice finds and I'm going to guess that it took more than a day to find all of those items. Plus you know what they all are. B)
