    They are all late 19th C Horse Harness Buckles.

    They look pretty small, but they could have been used on halters/harnesses or even on belts or purses.
    What other finds did you have that could help in dating them?
    Did you dig the dime (1991?) in the same area?
    I would GUESS the age to be early 1900's on...

    As Cru and HuntinDog already mentioned Gregg... late 19thc horse related harness hardware.
