Suggestions and approximate age please
« on: February 23, 2017, 09:12:04 PM »
Found this buckle yesterday on an ancient road taken via front of a hill to a local medieval castle yesterday. Wondered if any of you fellow detectorists could tell me more and approximate age? Measures - height = 25mm X width 35mm. Thought it might be a shoe buckle. I think it is hardened leather that is encrusted within the top right of the buckle.

...looks like a Georgian era hat, knee or stocking buckle from approximately the 1720's to 1790's  ;)
