Greetings all. I have been trying to ID a buckle I found about 15 years ago. Never had any luck, thought I would try again. The buckle is copper. The lower middle portion reads "Pat. 1856-1870". Included in the photo is a Lincoln penny for size context. The additional photo's are relics I found within 50 yards that may or may not put the period into context. Not implying that it is related but the site was located within a few miles of a Confederate prison. Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!!
