    Latest Colonial Bonanza..Coppers and Reale's

    I met up with my buddy Ken Whitley this week to search what are now thinking was an old stage coach stop in Virginia. Included are our combined finds.

    Its a saddle ornament if its stamped brass and lead-filled, we find them at housesites and campsites and it's in Crouch's book listed as well on page 140...sometimes find them without the lead filled back too. I will say that it looks very similar to the buckle you listed as well... the backside would be the determining factor.

    Did notice the pic you posted from UKDFD has the cross bar attached on the back while the one of Mike's has the cross bar mounted in the center like the one in Crouches book.
