    I think that this is a buckle from the 1700s. Metal detected in Vermont

    I'm not entirely sure what this is. I found it in a remote area in Vermont metal detecting. It was near the area where I also found a 1779/1800 over stamped large cent coin.

    Welcome. Yes, it is a frame to a shoe or knee buckle, depending on the size. Nice find.
