Cricket Buckle!


I scored a cool and slightly humourous cricket buckle last week, too scared to Google it!

A nice find for sure.
Here is the link to The Australian Detectorist Recovered Cricket Buckle Book

I’m yet to find a cricket buckle but they came in a huge range of designs. They seem to be more about the game itself than actual teams but there were teams and tours as well.

I think the ‘The Ball Clasp’ was a bag for carrying cricket balls. A cricket belt probably signified a person was a ‘gentleman’ but it was good to see some prisoners wearing cricket belts in the book. :laughing:

Buckle all right , sadly no registration diamond . While it looks like a pear i wonder if it could of been a punching bag , which would make it a boxing buckle ? But it does look like a branch with leaves and fruit , strange one indeed !
