Congrats on your superb CS buckle Jeff! most of us still dream of finding a CS buckle!

Nice find umrgolf. That is an exciting find and all the way from Memphis. I wonder how many miles that ole buckle traveled and imagine the stories it heard around the campfires from both sides. May have been a soldier fighting for the South and returning home to the North. Strange way things happened back then. Hope you keep it.
