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

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
