    You are dang fortunate to find those other two pieces,I cant tell you how many fragments of buckles I have found and very seldom do I find the remaing pieces.
    Hats off to ya bud,Banner vote in as well!!
    The only reason I found them is because it broke when I was pulling it out of the hole. Although cast, it was very thinly constructed and the pieces snapped like toothpicks when I was pulling it out of the hole. The back of the disc was the only thing exposed and i honestly thought it was a large cent oh well, what can you do.. Thanks to all for replies and banners

    That's a beautiful buckle, I would keep it just as it is, without repairing it. Are you sure you broke it? HH

    There's no reason not to repair it because you can do something very simple from the back, and it doesn't even have to be permanent, just enough to hold everything in place. I would not have a repair done that involved altering the patina for the entire piece to have the break points blend in. In this case less is definitely more.

    Yeah, it was me that broke it. The break points are shiny. When I was chiseling the hole, all I saw was the disc upside down and thought it may be a large cent. I reached down to pull it out like any other circular piece of brass not knowing what it was. The loop was hidden in the side of the plug.. when I pulled it out the loop stayed in the hole If you've ever held this variant of the L & R, you'll see its about as thick as a toothpick on that side.

    I'd like to have it repaired for the fear of losing the smaller portion that broke, its tiny. Like Patch said, I would never have it repaired and then altered to hide the break, only to make it whole.
