    This belt buckle. Magnet won't stick to it but its not rusted. And is to heavy to be stainless or aluminum. What else did they make old buckles out of. Is silver heavy.

    The "tooth" is almost always made of iron, the buckle most often will be brass, sometimes coated with other metals. Some brass will shine like silver if you rub hard enough. Did yours have a green patina when you first dug it?

    I took another look at your photo, looks like it's nickel plated, probably brass under the nickel.

    I'm hoping to find a cellar at this ol house. It was built around 1815 to 1825. And was used til bout 1960's from what I can find on it and what I'm finding around it. I know during the time they had cellars. It has two sand stone chimneys with probably around 1000 rocks to make each and the family cemetary has some marble engraved headstones in 1840 so they weren't a poor family.

    That sounds like one hell of an exciting place. Your persistance will pay off. The site should also have a privy...that would be an awesome discovery! Best of luck, keep posting the finds.
