    Relic Hunting

    1853 3 cent piece, old shoe buckle and other relics.

    I had a quick hunt along the Mohawk River in upstate NY, with the ATPRO (big coil). 1853 three cent piece ! My first! A pair of French buckles with the mark of "Solide". Some flat buttons, cuff link, a baldric buckle, round balls of various sizes. A piece of Victorian hair jewelry or brooch. Various early 1900s relics, chain, "peerless" arch supporter "warranted German silver" (plated copper), an "ever ready" razor. An eagle lock co key. The broken shoe buckle looks very old to me. This is my first season of detecting and I've found a few frames but nothing that looks anything like it. I'm not even sure what type of metal it is. I'm thinking pewter or bronze. It doesn't look like any of the pewter I've found. I'd appreciate any theories on the age of the shoe buckle. Thanks for looking ! I forgot to add the pair of small buckles.

    Me too ! They were all in the same hole, it's in such rough shape but it's probably my favorite find so far.
