Hello,

Congratulations on a very nice find!

As for a price estimation? I know what a price for a non-ground found 108th Regiment marked buckle would be, and for a 108th Reg't tschako front plate. Ground found items are in a whole different realm for value that I do not have a grasp of. They are usually damaged and not in the original condition as they were issued. Some collectors like items in this condition, and others do not collect items that were ground found. I wish that I could help you, sorry.

Thanks for sharing photos with us. I can imagine it was very exciting to find the buckle and tschako front plate in the woods. What a very good surprise for you, congratulations!

Best Regards,

Alan

Ground dug is indeed a very different field of collecting and with very different prices than non-ground dug. Can not help you either when it comes to prices. In any case a pretty cool buckle!

Ground dug items are always a bit tricky to price, I would personally try to auction them if I was selling them.

Thanks Guys for these interesting Opinions... I will perhaps do that, but after being informed on the Value from NON-digged comparable Items. That is really not my Area of collecting.
Bu I fully understand yhe post of Views here : I have seen digged Items more expensive than good condition ones (especially when thay are related to well known battlefielfds), and other sold for peanuts....
The Area where these Artifacts where founds are really the A... of the World, no chance it bumps the Price ;-) !!

"During the First World War, the Vosges were the scene of severe and almost continuous fighting" plus it's a beautiful landscape and someone might even be ready to pay for it more in an auction. Vosges was not the Somme or Verdun, but the area had a fair share of combat.

What is the material of the buckle ?
I have to check in the Regimental history but I don't remember that the 108R was in Vosges sector.
