    Nice little 1600's buckle today

    Hi Diggers,
    I got out for a couple hours this morning. Tom and I detected a corn field he got us permission for and then we hit some woods up above the old village. I didn't have a banner day by any stretch of the imagination but I did get a great little buckle that dates to the 1600's! I also found 4 toasted modern coins (1851, 1874, and 2 with no dates). Here's a pic and thanks for looking. Happy Digging!

    I tend to only check out the coin finds and miss out on the unique relic finds that everyone posts. Congrats on a nice buckle find, but I have to admit I like your coin posts a tad more. Thx WD
