    1738 Irish Farthing, Shoe Buckle, Stove Plate

    I found a new site yesterday. I call it Sandbox 9. I dug up a really interesting stove plate. It could be from a five plate stove as the Farthing is dated 1738. I believe it says "Bless This House" on it but I can't make out the name of the furnace on it. I'm doing electrolysis on it now and hope to get more detail. Are there any stove/fire back people out there? Any opinions? Also found was a shoe buckle with a worn makers mark on it. Any clues? Could there be a Sandbox 10?

    Nice buckle. That one is probably as old or older than the farthing

    Jamb stoves are a really in concept. I like the way they were a 5 plate design and used opposite the fire place. German engineering!

    I would agree with toasted...that buckle has some age to it. Congrats to you on a great hunt!
