18th Century Shoe Buckle Dug in New York (SOLD)


This is an 18th century Artois style colonial shoe buckle which was dug in upstate New York.  These became popular in the 1770’s through the 1780’s.  I’ve personally found an example in the Greenbrier Valley, which was then the deep frontier.  This is an exceptionally well preserved example.  Brass frame with iron insert.  It’s complete and still functions!
