    Sold for $66, will try and see if I can find anything more at all. Good luck hun...

    oh hey now. just found this as well.. will add 2nd link too...hope this gives you a bit more info dben.

    as quoted: "A beautiful, solid brass warded - lever commemorative padlock made by Slaymaker. This lock commemorates Admiral Byrd's expedition to the North Pole. There are three locks in the commemorative series. The CQD, THE NORTH POLE and THE SKY KING (increasing order of difficulty to obtain). The lock is in excellent condition and works well with its operating key. SIZE: 2.0"w x 2.75"h x 0.5"d. 4.7oz - eBay (18 June 2009)".

    and another quote: "VERY NICE OLD PADLOCK. IT IS LISTED AS A "COMMEMORATIVE" LOCK. HAS AN IGLOO AND SUNRISE ON THE FRONT, THE BACK IS PLAIN. THE OFFICIAL NAME LISTED IS THE "NORTH POLE" LOCK (ADMIRAL BYRD'S EXP.) COMES WITH A KEY. THE PADLOCK COLLECTOR BOOK, PAGE 273, #7. MEASURES ABOUT 2 7/8" TALL. - eBay (25 May 2009)

    This padlock had a high bid of $114.49 (Plus $5.95 Shipping).".

    ps found a wee bit o' info about the buckle..... wish there was more.....but it at least gives you 2 links...will post momentarily...

    the first link, if you scroll down to the pics, you will see your buckle a couple pics down on the right. (Pat Dec 16 ,1879)
    if you scroll down almost to the bottom of the page, you will see a guy named "Yeki" (forum name) give this guy a link to a metal detecting forum.
    and then the 2nd guy gave the man yet another link... (phew) to try to ID. looks all good on this end. Hope it helps hun..

    The coin is a Chinese "cash coin " , a common find on ground in 'Nam. I have one my past away wife gave me in Korea in Yongsan near Myungdong 41 years ago, if not for her, I would not have had the work I found stateside. I thought working for the Commonwealth as a Social worker in Welfare would gain respect, but not for veterans as jobs were scarce then when Doctors became janitors.

    If you can rotate the cash coin 1/4 turn right, I could probably date it for you. Hard to read sideways.

    The 3rd pic looks like a harness buckle cover.

    This coin kept bugging me and now I finally realize the proper rotation was 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

    Im sure this is it and Ill date it in a sec I hope Attachment 638582

    That lock commemorates the trip where Adm. Byrd was Allegedly taken into the Earth by flying saucers . There is a whole conspiracy theory about it.
