Cool finds! I love military buttons and related stuff. You definitely have a musket ball extractor.

Fred,

Good going on the life saving badge I managed to find one several years ago also.

the corkscrew thing is likely musketball extractor (or later) ...
you oval thing is part of horse brass...usually flat decorative pieces attach to other end and leather strap would run through it..all great finds

Nice find on the bronze medallion, and the decent amount of coinage Fred. :tu:

What you have is a bronze medallion Fred.. I got one many years back [not even sure where it is now].

I'd be very happy finding a couple of musket balls and a General Service Button all in one hunt! :clap:

Very nice GS button. It dates from 1924 to 1946.. so there is some age there
