Short hunt at a new permission site

It turns out that a 19th century road runs through a friend's back yard. It had lots of troop movement and is in close proximity to a major C.W. cavalry battle. Had time for a quick hunt after work and found a flattened rifled musket bullet in the road bed, a fired Enfield bullet and a nice sword hanger accoutrement piece 10 feet off the road bed.
Thanks for looking and happy hunting!

Good stuff Gary. I'm thinking the hook is to adjust a belt.

You're right VaRachel, thanks. Not part of a hanger but a shoulder strap hook used to adjust to fit. The top arrow in the illustration inadvertently points to an example.
