Found these 2 buckles. Look like some kind of shoe buckles. Anyone have any idea if they are shoe buckles and the time period? Thanks.

Didn’t think of that. You may be right. Found these in the same area I found a few large cents(1830 oldest) and a half cent(1825), so I’m thinking this may be same time period.

Suspenders for sure or bib overalls and 19th century looks right. Peace Roy

I found one that looks similar to that, it has a patent date on it March 7 1871. Very Cool!

The "adjuster" sounds right. I've found a few but with no fancy markings.
