    Thought I had an old buckle at first..then disappointment!

    Any ideas what this is?? found at a homestead that dates earlier than 1775. I think this looks manufactured and like an electrical switch plate. Any other thoughts??

    Part of a clock, there would be two of these piece with gears and wheels sandwiched in between..

    On the second pic by your finger tips I can make out usa clock co. But can't make out what is above that. Kinda looks like writing at the top of the frame also. But I dunno. Still a cool find. HH

    I could hardly find the USA clock co. and didn't see anything else. Went back with a loop and realized it says Waterbury above that.

    If my link is correct Waterbury made watches and clocks from 1857 thru 1944.
