    Hunt 91 Finds! 1800 Homesite 1889 Belt Buckle? Cool Finds!

    Hey friends. Went back to the 1800's site again today. We just had a flood so to speak here in cave city so I thought the ground would be very soft and maybe I could find deeper stuff. It wasnt a bad hunt by all means. My prized piece topday was the small buckle that reads PAT. 1889 It looks very small for a buckle but the thing lifts on it and everything.. anyone have any ideas? My wife seems to think it might be off a garter? IDK. thanks for looking!!

    I'd say more similar to a suspender buckle but I think many having other uses can look close.
