I was scared to open your post for fear of you going "April Fools" lol
The button is way cool, Ive seen a few found and I dont remember right off what its for other than its like a Woodsmans or Woodsmans Fraternal Order or soomething of that nature.
Cant tell for sure about your arrowhead, but I think it may be a Jingler.Whats the button Backmark btw? And nice going on your finds.

Gotta over ride you guys on the brass arrowhead. This is a brass arrowhead and not a tinkler or dangler or jingler. This one is in my area of expertise. I have way to many Creek Indian artifacts. Where we hunt, we find quite a few tinklers (usually made from trade silver) as well as brass arrowheads. The brass arrowheads were used from the 1830 through the 1890. Short lived but high tech compared to the flint arrowhead. I have seen a few in museums and read about them in reference books.
We have found several in one area that were made by the same guy. You can just tell from the size and thickness of the brass. It is really cool everytime we dig one up that matches the others. My hunting buddy found one with part of an arrow shaft still in it.

I think Daniel is right on the Woodsman of American Fraternal something another. I have not found this button on the www but have found pins and buttons with a similar design. It is missing the back so no backmark. Sad

That is a great collection of finds! The undersurface lettering on that razor is cool. Why did they do it that way? It looks etched on the top and punched from the bottom.

Here is a link where I see quite a bit of history about the Modern Woodmen of America. I believe the "F" was a branch designated for the Foresters.
The link below shows some of the Foresters.
Woodman Museum
OMIGOD they Have a "Feinting Goat"!!!! lol!


This next exerpt was taken from the Modern-Woodmen.org website under history..
Modern Woodmen Foresters (Drill Teams)
Modern Woodmen Foresters were one of the most celebrated precision drill teams America has ever witnessed. Known far and wide for their elaborate uniforms, shiny axes and meticulous drills, the Foresters were a sight to see.
The Foresters were a powerful factor in promoting the growth and popularity of Modern Woodmen of America from 1890 until the late 1930s. Celebrated and enjoyed by so many, President Herbert Hoover even took notice and honored the Foresters at the White House.

Famous for rainbow parades
In what were termed “Rainbow Parades” because of their elaborate attire, more than 160,000 men in 10,000 units of Modern Woodmen Foresters marched their way into Americans' hearts. Modern Woodmen dazzled crowds by showing off each team in its own style and color of uniform. These “triumphs of picturesque pageantry” have been described as the most gorgeous spectacles ever witnessed on the streets of the cities that hosted them.

The Foresters were favorite attractions at several of America’s World Fairs. The last-known Rainbow Parade halted traffic on Chicago’s Michigan Boulevard for more than two hours as spectators by the thousands crowded the sidewalks and curbs to view the elaborate exhibition.


Live on in history
The pride and joy of Modern Woodmen for over 40 years, the Foresters continued to perform through the 1930s. Because they’ve earned a place in history, they’ll always be remembered as the beautiful spectacle that they were.
