This is another nice example of a complete shoe buckle. Couple of typical cape cod line fishing weights. Cone shaped fishing weight is different, found it by a fresh water pond. Unusual, what I think is a wax seal stamp but the seal is missing. Still has hits of Gold leaf. Bracelet is brass with remains of Gold leafing. Was quite down deep in a field overlooking a pond. Amazed it is all intact.

All good recoveries Cape Hunter! Especially that seal. Did you spend some extra time seeing if the stamp part was still there?

I did, but I don't think it was metal. I went back to the hole about a week later to check with a flashlight but no luck. Maybe it was some material that was etched in glass like a wax seal ring.

Great looking buckle and fob seal.
Some of the fob/seals were just plain-as a ornament on the watch chain.
