Thread: Nice Buckle Spill

    Nice Buckle Spill

    Just spent 5 days detecting in Bavaria and have MANY amazing finds to share with you. We were detecting a section of woods full of medieval relics and these 2 buckles popped up! Our German guide says they are 1500's for sure. My guess is horse tack buckles because they seem to be a bit beefy for human clothes. Also, I found many medieval horse shoes and oxen shoes there. I love the patina on these buckles.

    p.s. did I mention the spill of 174 medieval silver coins from the 1300's?

    You can not tease us with hints of ancient coin caches. It's against the law. Two great buckles though.
    Oldest find: 5,000 year old copper spearhead
    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter
    Coolest find: USA button with blue threads still on shank
