Default Nice Buckle

Found this buckle while messing around in my front yard. House is from 1860s.
Any ideas as to what type of buckle? Looks like part of a horse bridle to me.
Inside looks like there may be letters, but too worn to make out.

Very similar...and pretty much answers my question

Post-Civil-War Mosman's Patent (1879) "buckle-shield" for a horseharness buckle.

Your house was built in the 1860ís? Wow! I bet there are a couple of privys in your yard with old bottles in them. When you get bored you should go out there with a metal rod and probe for bottles.
