I have been digging union and confederate bullets in same area. I dug 2 flying eagle pennies 1857, 1858 next to it. I also dug a toasted colonial copper next field over. I know the farm covers a few generations. this buckle is heavy and thick, appears to have had studs or tabs on the back side. thanks for any help or thoughts.

I think what you have is the bottom of a stirrup. Check out this site: https://www.google.com/search?q=hors...0sQsAR6BAgCEAE
