    2nd Colonial Silver this week -Solid Silver Knee Buckle this time

    I spent a couple hours digging at the site I dug the solid silver shoe buckle on Monday Confirmed Solid Silver Colonial Shoe Buckle with Paste Stones - Amazing Relic!. This site has been detected pretty hard over the years so the targets are getting pretty scarce but if you work it hard it still gives up some nice finds.

    I had a really sharp 82 on my T2 and it was pretty shallow so I wasn't expecting much when I dug a 3 inch plug in the sandy soil. Checked the hole and it was in the plug. Pull out what looked like a flattened brass ring but after closer inspection noticed it was wider on the ends with pin hole in it and it had a silver tone to it. I quickly realized that it was a knee buckle and not just any buckle it is a solid silver knee buckle. After digging the silver shoe buckle on Monday I couldn't believe it - it totally made my day.

    I also eyeballed a piece of flint for a flintlock in a hole that I dug a rusty nail from. Always wanted to find a flint and glad that I can mark it off the list.

    Hey man now you're just showing off! These people must have been wealthy! Congrats on the flint as well man. I want a silver buckle badly. You're finding 2 a week lol. Hey bud we recently started a North American colonial forum under Artifacts forum. These finds will fit in nicely. They won't get a million views but the people seeing them will really appreciate them. I'd love to see some of your better finds from the past as well

    Colonial Period
    Thanks guys for the comments. I was wondering if anyone else felt like it was as good of a find as I did. I realize that colonial relics don't appeal to a lot of diggers so I understand if people don't get it. In 5 years of digging its only my 4th knee buckle so it being silver makes it even more special. You just don't see a lot of silver from the colonial period.

    It's only showing off if you like what you see . Yeah, I'm over the moon about these two silver buckles. Glad there are some people on the forum that appreciate this stuff as much as I do. I'll definitely post over on the new colonial forum as long as I don't get my wrist slapped for making the same post in multiple forums.

    Excellent knee buckle. With all that bling around, those dopes surely dropped some loot. Silver loot

    I've been hoping the same thing. This site was a plantation in the mid 1700's and likely had wealthy owners and guest. I'm sure that some nice coins have been pulled out of the site over the years but I'm not complaining with my two silver buckles.
