Tried to hit low tide today where I found one of the colonial buckles on Friday. Tide was not very low though:BangHead: nor were there many targets:BangHead: I did manage a few small roundballs, piece of shoe buckle chape and only my fourth ever early silver cufflink. Cant make heads or tails of the engraving on it. Possible the initials cHs

Thanks. The others all came from land. Thin old silver tends to get washed out after 250+ years in the water

Gotta love colonial silver. A quick zap with low voltage electrolysis might bring out a little more detail. Or you could soak it in lemon juice.
