    I have 2 new Guess what this is items..

    First Item -
    It's part of something that has a handle but it is missing the 2 or 3 other items.

    That's a long hunt in this hot weather. You did great and I'm sure you had fun. I couldn't even hazard a guess on those two items.

    I was wet with sweat! But I enjoyed every second!
    I had 1 large bottle of semi frozen Gatorade and 1 big bottle of water with ice in a travel cooling bag. I refuse to get dehydrated and sick again!

    Correct!
    The tip broke off and it is missing the body and the fins.

    I can't blame you! It's an easy way to get sick and easier to get dehydrated. Glad all went well and you did so well.

    The second item is a dart body. The first item is an old coin finders award.

    The first "what's it" looks like the top of an old style double edge shaving razor.
    One you might find in a travel kit with the screw on handle.
    Been hit with a lawn mower I suspect.

    Correct!
    Top part that screwed in to the handle and held the blade in place.

    That appears to be part of an old style safety razor (newer ones have the folding 'wings' that open/close by twisting the handle) - the size fits, as does the threaded stem for a screw on handle - Davey D beat me to it ;)

    Hey Paddy, nice haul. You seem to pick up on Copper, Silver and steel. Have you ever found any GOLD ?
