    NEED HELP! COLONIAL KNEE BUCKLE & BUTTONS

    met up with FastFrank today back to a cellar hole that him and paul dug quite a few buttons & Paul got a king george copper.
    today was button day!never dug so many buttons in one hunt in my life.all plain one piece.it's a wonder these people kept clothes on their backs
    got a nice ornate something with a eagle head.had no clue until i cleaned it which was a nice suprise and a tiny colonial knee buckle.(the capped bust dime is for size comparison,) never seen a harp backmark on a button yet.
    was hazy,hot & oh soo humid.but always worth the sweat when hunting with Frank.thanks man!
    can anyone id what the ornate eagle thing may be? notice the hole in beak where something may have been attached

    Awesome hunt - I found one with a harp on back - but mine did not have everything else that yours has going on
    harp is usually Irish

    Quite a nice haul in the late Spring heat Dave. That's a very nice ornate buckle and the eagle relic is stunning. Congrats on having a great hunt guys, Quindy.
