Nicest shoe buckle I've ever seen! Hope you return & find the rest of it! Are the pesky bugs mosquitoes or are they the teeny-tiny black flies of the Northeast that insisted on getting in my eyeballs when I lived on Lake Champlain years ago? hmm, now that I recall their persistence, I'm happier here 3000 miles away with the poison oak, ticks & pumas of coastal CA, lol. HAVE FUN! Andi

So many old sites to hunt....so little time.
Very cool shoe buckle.... The silver ones don't turn up too often. Very ornate design on that one. Get back there and find the other half!!

Wow that must have been a cool place to detect at finding all that cool stuff and that buckle too. Congrats!

thanx I found all that in no more than a 20'x20' area, and I basicly sifted a 3' round area looking for the other part of that buckle! lol its a home site with no cellar hole along a rock wall, just found it by map overlay 1866, im sure the site goes back to the eary 1700s, last year I found a 1828 bust half less than a 1/4 mile away along the same rock wall, its a good area

A beautiful shoe buckle piece, and yes looks like some rifle parts. Not certain about the butt plate, but could be a hammer there and Definitely a ramrod channel in your photo.
