    that early 1800's to mid 1800 era two piece naval belt buckle == (either british or american most likely ) would be a great find -- now got get the other half of it for a real treat.

    any war of 1812 to civil war era naval troops in the area, that you know of?

    I am being told it is a 1943 Navy Sash Belt Buckle... mainly used by woman because it's so small and dainty... But that has never been proven... Went back again yesterday and tried hard to find the other half to no avail... but that don't meen that it isn't there somehwere.. I'll keep looking...

    What an awesome hunt! Those are all some very neat relics. The Walkers in the compact is too cool! What are the dates on the halves? Way to go & I hope that site continues to produce more great finds for you.

    Those are some great finds especially the compaq with the quarters...I have yet to brave the snow and cold this year.Last year by this time I already had 3 hunts under my belt.I might have to head to a coastal beach soon to get my first hunt out of the way for 2013.

    modern navy items used "fouled anchors " (with ropes) that plain anchor design with no rope --ie non fouled * is a very old type design used from rev war to civil war era time frame generally speaking (note it might be a sword belt buckle )--thus not a heavy duty large hold yer pants up type of belt buckle

    compact is the correct spelling * for a item that holds things like make up or coins in this case.---compaq is a computer company ==and compac is wrong too.

    I try to help spread what knowledge I do have --I too learned what I know from others --its a steady learning process, every day I try to learn something new -- it helps to keep my brain form being "bored' (ala sherlock holmes, I must have something to keep my mind buzy* )--lord I hate being bored, it is about as bad of a thing as I can think of while still being alive.
