Minutes later I was very excited when this military buckle jump outside, after many years underground.

One of the best relics I have ever found.

Congrat's on a very nice Save of the buckle. The front almost resembles an early version of a Louisiana State Seal buckle, or am I seeing things? Great save either way. Well Done. Maybe someone here can help you get it dated.

Congrats on the buckle, hope somebody will chime in with a positive ID for you.

Very cool save, Jorgeke! I can't help with the ID, though. I got stung by a wasp a couple weeks ago. It just about made me cry!
