    Colonial Relics Intact Shoe Buckle and buttons..

    Hit an area that was once part of a large plantation.. found a good number of flat buttons, pewter buttons and one heavy silver plated tiny button.. the best find of the day was my first intact colonial shoe buckle. I have tons of bits and pieces but this was my first one that was whole!!! A couple of the buttons were in my container from my last hunt so I included them here.. 2 or 4 I think..

    why "just short of intact"? The cross piece was iron.. there were bits of it left but it had rotted away... the rest of it is a strange type of pewter.. very rough and pitted.. most of the pieces I have found have been in pretty good shape.. smooth not pitted like this. I guess I'm wondering what else is missing?

    Thanks,
