    Thanks Menzl. The button on the right is tombac alloy. Mostly copper/zinc, but could contain other metals and semi-metals such tin, lead, arsenic etc.

    Nice one Drew. I've found complete copper shoe buckles and complete iron shoe buckles but never a complete combo. I am guessing Dan likely has a couple dozen complete specimens though. ;)
