    What state did you find it in?

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received

    I'm only guessing, but you item may be post Civil War. There were 100's of fraternal organizations in the latter part of the 19th century.

    U. L. could be "Union League". The was a Union League of Alabama during Reconstruction. This item could be from a local chapter.

    Can you be more specific about the location of the find?

    Are you sure it is a buckle? It looks more like a pin to me.

    I found it on private property in south Alabama. It could be a pin.

    Tough one. The M.B.A. part of this acronym may stand for the commonly used "Mutual Benefit Association" or "Mutual Benevolent Association".
    The clasped hands symbol may give some credence to this. However I've not been able to come up with anything that works with either of them.
