Shown as an English find by a bloke who wants to know what it is.

Relic Hunter Timmy found the same buckle (posted in reply #74).  I wonder if it was struck for the English cricket tour of America and Canada in 1859/60.  I've posted this link before but it's a cracking read.

You guys are killing me, They are all awesome relics. I can't wait to find a cricket buckle. No matter where i go i can't find one, maybe they didn't play cricket on the Mornington Peninsula or they used string to hold their pants up.

Hard to see what they are doing. Looks like a sports arena in the background but it seems the bloke in the middle has an axe. Maybe he was unhappy with a call or it could be a flag?

Thanks Brian, when I read the article it was ringing away that I'd seen the design somewhere.  I scanned all pages of this thread but must have had a "man look"  ;D.

For an item that was so popular for a large number of years, there's not a lot of references in the historical record!!!
