Went back to the place I found the gold coin and found some more goodies. Several I need ID’s on. This place has been bulldozed and everything I was digging was 4 inches or less today. I found some revolver bullets and some round balls and a eagle button. Not sure what the nail looking thing is. It has beveled edges and looks to be brass. Also the two iron things in the left. The one on the right looks to be a knife. The two pictures with the small thing is a front and back and I’m not sure what it is.

Cool digs, the iron piece in the top left is most of main spring for a 1815-21 flintlock musket.

A most or mast? Thanks for the info. I was thinking something to do with a sight but couldn’t figure it out.

Almost a complete flintlock main spring. Google it when you fire a musket this spring propels the hammer forward. It takes a pretty good pull to set the hammer on this type of gun.
