Thread: Rare "US" Indian War "H" buckle - ***More Pictures added 4/4***

    Rare

    Today I headed back to the early 1800’s stone chimney property that I’ve been detecting at. I was only there about 5 minutes and got a somewhat iffy signal. After digging through some roots and pulling out a square nail and a Mason jar lid, there was still a signal. I reached my hand into the hole and worked the find around some roots. To my amazement I popped this relic out and saw the “US” on it! I thought it was a buckle of sorts but had no idea how old? I headed to the truck to get my video camera and shot this video. Still shocked, I e-mailed a few Tnet members from my Blackberry to see if they knew what it was. After waiting for a reply for about an hour, Ty finally responded back that it was an Anson Mill’s belt plate from the American Indian War era (Circa 1881-1894). Later I learned these buckles were used during the Spanish American War also. The buckle is brass and dated “Feb. 1, 1881” on the back. About two weeks ago I dug my first bullet from that era too (.45/70) at the same property. At first I was a bit disappointed that this wasn’t a CW era buckle, but then realized that I had never seen one of these “H” buckles posted on Tnet before. Have you My other finds were: *1919 Wheat penny *”Gilt” domed top button w/shank *Cosmetic compact *Rusty hook No snakes today, but I did pull FIVE ticks off of my clothing. Thanks for looking. MM

    HOLY MOLEY! It looks even better cleaned up! Outstanding Dug Never seen one here on T'net before! Glad I remained "tick free" today...



    Yeah, I'll vote "BANNER" on the plate. Just because it's not CW doesn't mean it's not a significant find my friend...

    Seen a lot of belts here, but nothing like that one. Sweet find. Seems it belonged to a cartridge belt. Hope there are a few smart people out there who can shed some light on the history.
