This European Fighting Axe was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.

This Early American shot pouch is constructed of hand sewn leather and lead spout with a carved wooden plug. The leather is I believe to be soft Russian leather with a red stain on the inside that was common in that period. It appears to be all original and is in great shape. It also still contains a handful of lead shot that is of various sizes that was made by dripping molten lead into water.
