Haven’t had an expert look at them...they are pretty rusted but from what we could find on the interweb the pans are Acme cold handle 1872 Is when they started getting manufactured...they came in a two pack...and the double boiler pot I don’t remember the maker but it started getting manufactured in 1880s 

Those are really cool finds.

JACK did you find any fence staples in there?-i cannot see any.  how about files-i see that rasp-for working steel?  thinking maybe a long-line trappers stash.  back in the day everybody had pans for spring runoff but pickins' were slim.  they would pack food for 2 or 3 days but cache their gear along the route.  just a thought.

I didn’t see any staples...the cast iron mortar and pestle, pick, and the gold pans...I just assumed prospector. The rasp is a farriers rasp and the shoes and bit are for a burro and the rings I believe are from a halter...and there were two dinner plates, spoon , fork, knife, and a corkscrew

A few years ago I got caught in a crazy thunderstorm in the wilderness and this little cave was the best thing I could find for shelter...while I was waiting for the storm to pass I notice a piece of metal in the back of the cave and I started moving rocks and all this old miners loot was stashed in there...pretty crazy find...except the sumbitch didn’t leave any gold behind

Here is a few of the cool things I have found. The arrowhead I found on the property I grew up on near Willcox. The rest came from the elfrida area.
