    CellarHole/Park Hybrid

    Hi everyone,
    Previously at this site, I've found everything from a late 1600s coin to yesterday's surface covid coins.
    The keepers are self-explanatory... but that little crudely ornate buckle is interesting. I don't think it's a knee buckle as the pin is oriented like a shoe buckle and the bend is too pronounced. Any ideas? Thanks and happy Memorial Day!

    Drew, it's either got to be colonial green or modern shiny....It's not fair for you to be finding both at the same time.

    Hopefully the CT Badger will shed some light on that buckle.

    Most excellent finds Drew! Quite the potpourri of finds you have there! The buckle is definitely colonial, but is so small it's hard to see that fitted on a shoe.
