A Boer War silver belt buckle, with pith helmet above 2 crossed rifles with bayonets attached, surrounded by a wreath with the British national flowers (rose, thistle, shamrock and leek). The engraving is quite attractive. Unfortunately we have not been able to identify the regiment, we have seen nurse's buckles similar to this, but feel the presence of rifles makes a nursing attribution unlikely.
Morning hunt in a union camp. Two of my bullets I recovered was sharps carbines. One was a regular sharps and the other was a .577 sharps. The .577 sharps was gray in color and not white like usual. The lead in this one has a different composition than the regular sharps.
