    By Jove, this could be it. Excellent pull. The Patt has just the right amount of smudges after it for this to fit. Pattison The faint E is an I?

    i thought if the buckle did belong to Washington, there maybe a receipt
    or an order in his papers, maybe the Pattison name is there.
    reading around there were a lot of metal smiths and shoemakers in va.
    that type of buckle was popular from late 1770s- early 1790s

    Pattison was from Berlin Conn....and made supplies for Washingtons army..... it may have been made as a tribute piece... Im sure there is no paper trail as if it was made for GW it would have probably been a gift

    I agree it is likely a maker's mark but, for the record, PATTENS were a thing in the 18th C.

    They were more or less stilts or thick soles attached to your shoes to keep them out of the mud in the streets or, as pictured below, off the wet floor.
