Good morning.  No nuggets yesterday but the skunk brought me some lead, a boot tack and a cool little threaded knob.  It was down about a foot and sure sounded like gold.  It’s not ferris metal  and I haven’t given it the scratch test yet.  I don’t have a clue what it might be from.  Anyone have an idea?  
Thanks 

Dick Ward

Possibly off an old battery post > "Very High Technology from the 1850's"... from a telegraph or other old Edison battery powered device?   It is most likely made from brass or copper.
