    Finally ! My first shoe buckle !!

    Today was the first time that I have picked up the Minelab in weeks. Busy getting firewood ready. etc. Everything is like a jungle around here too.
    I decided to do a scouting mission at a spot that I just got permission to hunt. Very early place for my area. My research tells me that this was one of the earliest settled spots in my town.

    I was going to just hit the easy spots and do a quick cherry pick to see what might be around. My second decent signal was reading as a repeating 40 on my 705. Hoping for maybe a copper I was surprised to see a colonial shoe buckle sitting in the dirt! This is my first shoe buckle and something that has been near the top of my wish list for a while now. She is a little bent but thats OK with me!

    I dont really expect to find too much until spring time. This place has grass and weeds as tall as me. I can feel more good things to come

    Now that is what I am Colonially talking about. It looks like a crude 1770s shoe buckle. I am still waiting for my first complete frame as well. It is good to hear from you again!

    You may get a kick out of knowing that when I found the buckle, I thought of Kirk PA. I know how you are craving a shoe buckle of your very own

    They're tough here too! I have found more rare buttons than I have shoe buckles.

    Good to cross off the list, but now you have to move up to an intact one.
