Personal photos of my family's Civil War relic collection, found in VA during the '80s.

My wife’s family settled in Winchester, VA back in the 1970s and were still living there when i met her; in the mid-80s, her father and brother took a metal detector out on 3 excursions. my 3-part article is a recording of what they found.

This final installation covers assorted items that i couldn't place in the other 2 parts. as usual, i have really no clue what most of these things are...

OK, i think this one is a spoon :P


 this one looks like part of a stirrup


 these look like haversack hardware



 Part of a mess kit, perhaps?

I hope you enjoyed my presentations -- feel free to talk about these items in the forum; see you there!
