Hey guys, some of you may have seen on my other post that my wife found this Australia and England cricket buckle. We didn't know it at the time but after posting it online we have found out its 1890 and the only one like it. There is another one similar but doesn't have the curtains around the outside. So being a very unique piece if the earliest ashes cricket history and maybe the only one like it around would anyone know what price we could get for such a piece? It will be for sale just working out a price to start at.
many thanks for any info...

Do you think that cleaning it with CLR might decrease it's value,for you I'm hoping not.

A top find which ever way you look at it.

this is one of the items i wouldnt ever use CLR on. All i did with this was i took alot of time with soft fine tooth brush, water, detergent. Then once all the dirt was off it gave it a light gun oil to help protect it so all good with the cleaning side of things smile

the only thing i could find was the late 1800's and early 1900's were going for around the $100.00au mark

The design looks familiar, thinking one of a similar design was published in GG&T magazine with a write-up of the match the buckle represented. It could have been somewhere else though.......

Don’t forget the PA archives have some nice buckles

Dutchy came across just a few on one hunt....

Maybe offer it to one of the pollies or a CEO for an exorbitant sum..... one way beyond your wildest dreams. They may want to invest in their future with their super. 100 %

What a good find. I`ll be keeping an eye on that auction.

I looked at Dutchy`s finds from a couple of years` ago ,too. How many different sorts of these buckles were made ? Hundreds or thousands ?

I`d love to dig even one of these up from the ground.

Cheers.

Great find tailormarc. Have you contacted the WACA museum? I'm sure they will be able to tell you about it
