It's been a while since I've dug up anything " post worthy". Today turned out to be the exception. It was a beautiful Fall afternoon here in New England. I was able to wrap up work early, and headed out to a section of woods that has produced some colonial finds in the past.

The first decent signal turned out to be a rather fancy buckle. It's not a shoe buckle...maybe a knee buckle or hat buckle? Maybe a some kind or ornate tack buckle? I'm really not sure. If anyone has an opinion, please feel free to share.

The only other highlight of the day was a 1902 Barber dime. It's not in the greatest shape, but I'll take it

Finally...I did manage one LC on a separate recent hunt that I thought others would like to see. It's a KG II in not horrible condition.

That's all for now. Good hunting to all, and take advantage of the good weather when you can!

I agree...big thanks to Crusader and toasted for estimating the age of this buckle.! Here are some extra pics after I did some cleaning.

Best to all.

I had to check, as my memory is not as good as it used to be & although I knew it was 17th C, I was wrong to think late, as it actually may cross over into the 16th C!!!
