    CELLAR HOLE HUNT*CIVIL WAR UNION EAGLE SWORD BUCKLE

    sniffy picked me up at 7am and we headed up to a couple holes in his neck of the woods.was digging big iron pieces.my fourth target read half dollar at 4 inches.i dug a square nail and was saying it's gonna be one of them iron days then a flat piece of rusty iron came out of the hole.scanned the hole again and figuring there was still more iron in the hole i was digging carelessly when this buckle popped out .i nicked it with my shovel still more iron was in the hole and a brass piece too.so much stuff in one hole and was not expecting this find that's for sure.sniffy got skunked and i felt horrible that he didn't find any keepers.
    my only other decent find was the flat button.no coins,no coppers but would really like to know if this is a union civil war eagle belt plate? any idea on the value would be appreciated too.
    thanks all and have a great weekend!

    Congrats there! Looks like that's exactly what you have!! Don't hold me completely to it, as I understand they were also made into the Indian Wars era as well. Well done on it either way!!!

    That's a great find. I don't know the age or the value but someone will be along that does know. The number on the back should tell the age.

    That's great find!!! The 1851 sword belt plate has a narrow tongue indicating early Civil War production. The number is a benchmark number and is well struck. Congrats and HH.

    Sweet sword belt plate! my digging partner dug one this spring in a yard in windsor, CT. It came out great because the home was so close to the river(all sandy soil). Not sure if the number on the back depicts when it was cast but his was very low like 10 or close to that. Great find i see they sell up 500$ on some sites. Well done!

    Only one way to find out.... I'll be back down to get ya so you can find em. Seriously dude, don't worry about me not finding any keepers today. Just being out is "keeping" me sane. I can't believe how many holes we dug and miles we walked today! Very FUN!
