    Rev. War british lion head sword belt buckle...

    I know these are hard to get a accurate date on because they were used for so long but Iím going with late 1700ís because of where i found it. I went back today to a shoreline spot where me and a buddy in the past found probably around 30 george iii half pennyís between us in a fairly small area that looked like it would have been a good row boat boat slip spot in the past. There was no other sign of anything newer than late 1700ís to very early 1800ís at that location. We felt we cleaned it out before but today I went back and rolled some big rocks and got a great signal. After digging the targets out i found half of a lion's head buckle and a piece of lion head sling buckle for a sword belt. When the tide is lower some other time and i can make it back Iím hoping to find the rest lower down. The sea was hard on them but in person it looks nice and there is even some spots with a bit of gold gilt left on it. One little piece my buddy found before in the same spot is added to the picture. Its the smallest piece of the sling buckle. When i told him about the find he gave me the other piece to keep. Thanks for looking and some input and any info is appreciated on it!

    Nice.

    But at least you realise the date line might be longer than you hope for.

    Unfortunately i know. They were used for a long time as you know better than me thats for sure. All i can go on for a rough date is where i found it and what was found around it. Thanks for your input. Its always appreciated!

    Great find, and one to ponder the age. But dating anything is difficult. Even a dated coin. Once I found a spill with silver and copper dating from 1790 to 1835. The most important thing is thatís a bad arse buckle. Nice job - shoreline hunting isnít easy
