...Something like a cowgirl guiding her pony around the last barrel and pointing him home.Great find! Very interesting. It looks like something, (a horse ?) was once affixed to the front of the buckle. Maybe not. Hard to tell.
Yes there was a horse a lady and a rope. They were overlayed in a thin bright silver. But unfortunately, it has flaked off. It was more visable when I first found it.Great find! Very interesting.

You might be able to contact the silversmith co. that made it and see what it originally looked like.
I will look into this.
Yes, I remember thinking it was probable an aluminum can.I'll bet that about blew your headphones off, congrats!
It is German Silver from the commstock silver smiths. Says this on the back of the buckle. Germann silver is made out of copper, zinc and nickel and sometimes a bit of tin and lead. If this was not excavated from below ground, it would have been white metal. Ut excavated it shows alot of the copper color. There is no silver in German Silver also sonetimes called nickel silver.I have a HUNCH, and I could be wrong, but I don’t believe that is a silver item. Anyway, that’s a really cool find.
