    Eagle Buckle Tongue

    Finally found one of these intact. I've got lots of pieces I've found over time. No coins but this made my day!

    I'll have to go back to the site with a smaller coil. Loaded with deteriorating tin cans.

    Very nice gold rush era tongue. If I had a choice of finding a tongue or the wreath portion, it would be the tongue. Perhaps you will soon be reuniting the two. Well done

    That’s a sweet find

    Awesome find and in great shape! Congrats! Yep, get back out there and find the rest of the buckle and don't forget to check them deteriorating tin cans for Gold nuggets and check for Gold all around where they are at. Old Prospectors had a tendency to store their' Gold in tin cans which they often buried.
