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 cleaned up your pic a bit, as I feel there's a lot of detail to this buckle under the verdigris. :thumbsup:
It's incredible to think this may actually be 16thc as Cru suggested.

Here's the buckle Cru researched for comparison.

Nice side by side.
Just for those that are not aware; the fact that one has an iron pin & the other a copper-alloy is not uncommon. They get replaced a lot, & use the material most readily available at the time.
