I know what the first 2 items are, but still wondering about that handle shaped piece. Any ideas?

The second piece you show looks like an artillery frag. Also the one you pick up that you say might be part of a tractor looks like the top section of an artillery frag also. Does it have threads? Looks like the section that a fuse would screw into the top of the shell.

Hey Brian - thanks. I thought the threaded piece might be part of a fuse too. Yes, it does have threads, but it's not brass. Would it have to be brass? What about the handle looking piece?

Take a look at this picture.

I don't think its a fuse, but the inside Iron part of the shell itself. It's hard to tell on
the vid, but does it look more like this but smaller?

The other piece looks like a handle. I've never dug anything like that on a CW site so
I really don't know what it is.

Still not sure. Maybe its just a nut off of a piece of farm machinery? Is there a way for me to upload a close up image of it?
