    I found these with my metal detector. They were down about 12" and were about 3 feet from each other. One is 6-1/4" long and the other one is 5-3/4" long. They're cast aluminum or zinc.

      They look like small "half" pistols. LOL!! I had too. Actually they look like they may have been some type of ornamental pieces that attached to wood or something. Neat find though. What area of U.S. dod you find them?

      Thanks for your comment! I found these in my back yard, I live near Bardstown, KY. I searched online and found some repos similar to these that were drawer pulls. Mine have no screw holes

      Do they look like they are sand castings?
      You can tell by the texture of the surface.
