I hit some fields and woods that have been worked since the mid 1700's and gound some goodies with my buddy Donnie.

Thanks everyone for looking and I'm glad you enjoyed it's only my second fully intact shoe buckle and it's very similar to the other one I found so it will make a nice display. My buddy found the Indian in a field that had recently been cut and it wasn't down too far about 6in.

That’s a nice old buckle. Great shape. What’s on the flat button? Stripes?

Thanks Floyd. Good eye. Yes there are stripes on it. I have never seen one like it so it made my day and the buckle just took my breat away when I saw it come out of the sandbar.

Thanks Mkus! I have never spent much time researching potential sites using maps even though it is a great eay to save time. I have had just as much fun wandering in the woods and stumbling on foundations or old coins and relics dropped by loggers, hunters, culliers, or anyone else who wandered that eay before me.

Nice finds! Ironically, I found my first buckle the other day and it looks very similar to yours. I am trying to put a year or a range of years on mine but I can't imagine it being from the 1700's or even the early 1800's. If that is the case, I need to re-look / re-think at how I approached this area I have been hunting. How old do you think your buckle is? My intention is not to highjack your post, rather I am posting a pic so either yourself or someone else can chime in and provide a range of when this buckle was produced.

P.S. Thank you for service.

That is quite the collection of buckles! I never really hunted for relics as I am more of a suburban coin hunter. This one that I found truly took me by surprise and I can't believe how it was missed by hundreds of others that has hammered the property. Then again, I hunt areas most will never go or even attempt and the finds I have been making prove this. This buckle is one of them.
