Thread: Complete French Colonial Shoe Buckle!

    Complete French Colonial Shoe Buckle!

    I got back out to the site I've been hunting this past few weeks to hit another area. Still haven't found the "site" but did find a little pocket of musket balls and a very nice French shoe (breech) buckle! This is the first French buckle of this type that I've found in this condition. This is as it is out of the dirt. I'll do a little cleaning before it gets into the display case.

    I'm reasonably sure that the site is gone...destroyed when the brick works was built and subsequently destroyed. I think I'll have to content myself with scraps...

    Nice! I'm surprised that the iron attachment didn't rust away. What kind of site are you at?

    I've only ever found this style of chape at French sites and have just associated it with French...could be completely wrong though...
