    Quick lunch hunt in the snow, cool ornate buckle.

    Needed to take a break from researching sites and decided to hit a spot in the woods I have tried to locate 3 times without success this fall. It shows up as a dot on all of my old map overlays, but never was able to locate it with all of the brambles and high weeds.

    First sign that I was near the "X" was these guys giving nice signals under 4" of snow/light crusty ice.

    These harmonica reeds are typically a sign that I am into the site.
    This guy also gave a nice signal, most complete oil lamp fixture I've found.

    Then the best signal of the lunch hour. High tone, consistent and small.

    Also dug a little musket ball, not sure if old or modern, but looks like a dropped one.

    Sort of psyched that I finally found this old 1800's homestead.Looking forward to hitting this spot next week when the temps get into the 40's and I will get my 4" of depth back.

    Good luck out there!

    You are on a good CW era site there. The mystery item is from a McClellan saddle and is CW era or just after. The suspender clip is probable 1860s or 70s as well.

    Thx Steve! I guess this is my first saddle shield. Very cool ID help. Probably looked more like this 100 years ago...Click image for larger version.

    There were a number of models of the McClellan Saddle, the earliest being 1859. You would have to look into the seat shields and see if you can ID which model by shield.

    That is a really sweet suspender buckle. This site continues to amaze me, how quickly members can identify the mystery find!

    I notice that your shield has Inch abbreviated. I'll bet that would be a clue in dating it. I posted it on the "Civil War and Indian Wars Relic Identification" Facebook group. Should have an answer soon.

    I have a feeling you waste time at work researching spots to hunt haha or am I the only one?

    Those aren't every day finds, very cool!

    He needs professional help. The "bug" has become part of his brain.

    That susp. Clip is incredible! I used to love finding coins but these finds are just as satisfying IMO. Congrats on a fine hunt.

    He probably tracks mud into the office in the winter, and when he hunts at lunch during the summer when it's 90 degrees, no one wants to get near him when he gets back
