    Lol. I missed that decimal point. I kept looking at it trying to figure how that could be half a pound and how heavy that shoe would be!

    Someone spent a lot of time crafting that beautiful buckle and then they slapped an iron tongue and chape on it! Geez!

    Gorgeous shoe buckle!! An intact silver shoe buckle has been on my list since I started. Only ever found half of a silver one. Yours is an amazing example of colonial history and makes one neck of a display piece!

    I really hope this goes up top. These are so damn hard to find. We may see 10-20 GW inaugurals in the time we see a silver shoe buckle. We see more Mass silvers than silver shoe buckles. Way more gold coins. At the end of the day this is a very special relic and super difficult to find. Iíd be over the moon with that baby
