No. 1438: copper cylinder. See page 1518 and A4444.

No. 1439: gold sheet section of pole. See page 1518 and A4444.
The copper cylinder was on the gold sheet and partly wrapped in it. The two fit together and appear to present a strengthening of a splice in one of the roof poles.
Rolled sheet overlapped and nailed along one side. The wood is stuck to nails and extends beyond ends on both sides, i.e. this piece is from middle of pole.
