    Knee buckle?

    Hey been trying to figure this out for months. Found it in my parents back yard with detector in Winchester va. Is it a knee buckle? http://www.civilwaroutpost.com/25.ht...t=hat-insignia

    Nope but if it has the two pin holes, its a circa 1770s Shoe Buckle.

    Thanks, that would be pretty wild if it's 1700's . I can't seem to find pinholes but on the back there are 2 jagged areas where it looks like something was attached before and broke off

    The pin holes or attachments should be under the roses.

    Thanks again, besides historical value do you think it carries any other value? Would love to know the story behind it. Also found 2 civil war era bullets And a mini ball, 2 old spoons, the head off a digging hoe, and an ancient flattened salt shaker
