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

Amazing how this works, I found your bullet and casing , both in different locations (70) miles apart. 50-70 cartridge

Found this a few years back nuggethunting...had a nice deep target...after digging down two and half feet I though I may have struck the Big One !!:ya:. Than this little beauty came out of the hole, an 1840's- 1850's Naval officers belt buckle. Its one part of a two piece. This is as good as gold as far as I am concerned...the history behind it must be amazing. Imagine a naval officer going awol  and leaves  San Francisco for the Sierras to mine gold. California just joined the Union, and Mexico lost most of its Northern territories.
