    @SensibleSal66 .... Welcome aboard.... Really could use some more information... and perhaps a bit smaller pictures. That being said, based on the second picture, it does appear to be a buckle of some sort... have you soaked it in anything yet? More details might appear. Cheers, RickO

    I suggest soaking it in otc hydrogen peroxide for 24 hrs. Dry it, then soak it in mineral oil. IMO. 16 teeth mean anything? Peace Roy

  • I'm not sure about the teeth . I found it at a cellar hole close to a river and railroad track . Maybe a cutting tool ? Thanks for the cleaning tips .

    Cellar holes are great for finding all the items that fell thru the floorboards. I have dug killer items in the ground under former front porches as well. Have a good day. Peace Roy

    Cellar holes, old stone wall property lines (check for backyard visibility of significant formations - tree, large rock etc.)... Good luck with cleaning that 'buckle'... would be nice to identify it. Cheers, RickO

  • Thanks . I'll try this week. Happy Holidays everyone !

    Looks like a deflated football. Must have belonged to tom brady.
