Mystery solved...wagon spindle!

They had a cast iron bearing that was fitted into the wooden wheel. The picture shows the bearing, or boxing as it's called. I guess that was some old diggins!

I thought it was a nozzle also. Thats something the boys and I would throw on the "cool" relic shelf.

Great find!!

I was sure it was a nozzle of sorts too. There was a ~10' section of homemade flume wrapped around a mesquite in the wash itself that reinforced the nozzle theory.

 There were some sections of old road that were built by hand you can still see where they filled in low spots with cobbles. It's amazing to see the level of effort put into mining this area. 

I'm definitely saving it...more yard art!

Went out this morn found a lot of bird shot and trash near San Domingo, as I was about to call it quits for the day I got a good tone and dug this 1912 v nickel bout 3 inches.

No metallic but found these out in MT out detecting a placer area. The brush was so thick I was crawling on my hands and knees and crawled up on these. And they're a matching set. You don't always find that with sheds.

Got skunked on gold but they're worth a couple hundred bucks so not all bad.

Found this a few years back in Nevada.  It was under a bunch of cedar duff and still has the bullet in the chamber.  It is a Maynard Carbine .50 cal
