The first photo is some kind of bent two piece mold, should be round, the next it part of a powder horn I think, it has a federal eagle on it, not sure what the other thing is. All came from the colt firearms factory property in Hartford, CT.

It was probably sometime in the mid to late 90's that I was driving through Hartford and decided to make a stop at the Colt factory, at the time, the home of the US Patent Firearms company. The owner was a friendly sort and gave me a tour of his operation which was not so big and also showed me prototypes of Colt models that he was hoping to reproduce, like the 1905 Colt in .45. He also showed me a cigar box filled with all kinds of small parts that he had found by running a thin tool between the floor boards in the production part of the Colt factory. If I had worked there, I would have spent many hours doing the same thing.
