    Possible Colonial Shoe Buckle?

    I found this along a stream right off of the Susquehanna River in Northeast Pennsylvania. Seems like silver and looks like it had a piece in the center before. It looks like a shoe buckle to me? Any have any input or guesses on age?

    Btw- This is my first post here! I love exploring and looking for little treasures. I'm looking forward to communicating with like minded folks!

    Pics of back may help
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Yes, pics of the back may help. I APPEARS 19th century, Victorian in style, but I can't tell without seeing the back.

    It does not look like a standard shoe buckle. Most have a slight curve and a hole for the rest of the mechanism to attach to , The top is a knee buckle just a little smaller but complete.. Dave Click image for larger version.

    I would half hazardously guess that it may be a Hat buckle

    Nice find! Sash buckle is my suggestion. If you search Victorian sash buckles, many similar show up. You might try a little older search. Good luck.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Was this an eyeball find? Or did you use a metal detector?
