    Ornate Silver Shoe Buckle

    Out about 350 feet away from the root cellar and not getting anything besides shotgun shells. Then about 20 feet from a stone wall I got a solid 97 on the XP Deus' high frequency coil. The shoe buckle frame contains around .8 ounces of silver. I decided to keep the rusted chape, as it provides some authenticity and gives a nice bit of contrast to the silver frame. When I saw the shoe buckle come out of the ground it didn't look like silver at all. Glad I was wrong about that.

    Beautiful buckle for sure. Eight ounces of silver! That's a half a pound! Surely that buckle was worth quite a bit in trade even if it wasn't functional. Well that's good for a Banner vote!
