    Damn nice finds! Most interesting to me is the copper wedding band. Think about the story it could tell. Two people, married, probably had kids - lived an entire lifetime together, with that little piece of copper wrapped around someone's warm, living finger.

    And then it's lost. Discarded. Crushed beneath the Earth, by centuries of pressure and darkness. The people who once loved it so dearly are gone. Their kids are gone. Their kids' kids... everyone just gone. Not one person on the planet remembers them. Not even a photograph...

    And here it is, 2018. You dig it up. This thing hasn't seen the light of day in over three *centuries.* It looks like absolute hell. But it still tells a story...

    Man, I love that ****.

    Sorry disagree. The horse harness buckle beside it is of the same 19th C period. I now have a book that has these 'batwing' buckles in & IDs them, as I always thought, as 19th C Harness Buckles. It quotes the source of its conclusion as 19th C Horse harness hardware Catalogues that still exist.
    My thoughts exactly, yet more eloquently British, about the dating. Jk

    I meant to look it up, then forgot. What also caught my eye was the buckle was not solid cast but “cupped” in the 19th century style of saving material.
