Additional etchings include a musket with a powder horn attached to it by its carrying strap, another powder flask, a bowie-like knife, a saber or machete, and a long-handled axe. Another banner streams from the staff on the axe. A double lined wave pattern encircles the horn's neck. Etched into the troughs of that pattern are tipi-like carvings accented within the edges with diamond patterns. The horn has a wooden plug secured with seven brass brads. A single nail is inserted at the end of the plug as a suspension anchor for a short blue string. The string threads through a bore drilled through the neck of the horn.
