Nice buckle. Whitehead has this type as c1600-1700 a bit like No498.
If you don't have it, Whiteheads is a great reference :thumbsup:
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.

I agree with shaggybfc

497 / 498 / 499 in the whitehead buckle book are closest 16th / 17th Century

Heavily tinned, Asymmetrical open work scrolled frame, small to medium ones possibly used as spur buckles

shame its been eaten by the soil

the buckle book by whitehead is a PDF, used to be able to download, I will see if its still available

Sadly you can’t anymore, but ‘Buckles Through the Ages’ is available free here

It appears to be a nicer design of buckle 21 on this page
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
