If that's a broken double loop trapezoidal buckle, Whitehead has these at between 1570-1700

Thanks folks, it sounds like it' might be a bit older than I thought..Is it worth showing my FLO?

You can but I doubt they’d record it. No harm though :thumbsup:

I ve had a closer look, and I think it is a broken double loop buckle.. I am actually quite pleased it might be 1600's as that date puts in line with the date of a near by farm house...
