I found this 2-piece belt buckle metal detecting in Rochester, NY in March of 2020. I kept it a secret for a while but Im finally ready to let it go. This buckle still has a lot of dirt left in the cracks. I did not want to ruin any one the gold gilt.
I will leave it up to the next owner to clean it.. I was amazed to find both pieces as they were not in the same plug. Glad to save this piece of history! Currently stored in a rikers box. Rare Dug Pre Civil War NY Militia Excelsior Tongue and Wreath Belt Buckle.
