    Saw this on Don Troiani's Rev War Facebook Group. That is quite a find, and appears to be the only one known. i doubt anyone here can add anything to what you have already been told. What type of site was it found on and in what state?

    I can't imagine finding something like that. A shoe buckle that says General Washington? Oh the possibilities. You'd think it would be even nore rare then a GW button. Maybe even a banner find.

    This buckle was found on a farm in central Ky that has ties to the Lewis, Johnson, Taylor, Grover, LaFayette, Viley and Ward families... Its a literal whos who of early American politics.

    That is a great looking buckle. Love the patina on it.

    Sorry I can't shed any light on it. But I would guess it's a pretty significant artifact and very rare.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting find unfortunately it's one of those finds that your not going to get anywhere with.. Could be connected or a rare novelty item

    Killer find!

    Great find ! The cruel irony of finding " the only one known" -- is that knowledge drives collector interest , which creates buzz , which helps drive value (perception of value more like ). Perhaps the piece is a nostalgia piece as previously suggested - created after his death .Nice mystery relic !
