I found this Detecting a few years back. No one has figured it out. Anyone here have some ideas ?

That is unusual. I wonder if it's missing some a piece or two and was the reason it fell to the ground. Interesting to think of what caused someone to allow a part of their belt to come off and leave it for you to find years later.

I would say there was more to and why no one has figured it out. Unless a black smith or white smith made it and it's original. It looks like a football with threads.

That is a very cool belt buckle. Finding anything with a metal detector is a kick unless it is pull tabs and nails. lol
