    Buckle, Ammunition

    Hey, anyone know if this buckle is from the 1700s? I found it amongst other 1700s items at a cabin site and wasn't sure if it was that old. Also, what are those lead things, a round musket ball with a pin and a conical one. Thanks!

    Drew, it's a machine-made buckle, I think most folks date those after 1800. I'm not sure how much later though. Del might know when machine-made buckles popped onto the scene in the NE USA.

    Drew, you're tearing it up, great job! That large, pointed round I believe is called a sabot round.
