    I found these items just off the old military road that ran through Southeast Missouri. They were all within a few inches of each other. The metal isn't magnetic except for the round rusted piece holding one of the items together. In the first pic there is an item that kinda of looks like a bullet that expanded like a hollow point might. I doubt that item is part of the other two but I think the other two items might be related. The largest item is around and inch long. Any help in identifying these items would be greatly appreciated.

      I think it's a broken up cabinet pull. (ignoring the obvious metal jacketed bullet). The magnetic part is what's left of the screw that secured it.

      One piece looks like a handle from a small drawer and the other like the tip of spoon or knife handle? No idea how a bullet looks...

      I believe the "spoon tip" is part of the back plate to the faux or mock key cabinet pull.
