This looks like FN but could perhaps be TN or even IN.

On a small buckle with a London 1740 —1756 Lion Passant Guardant.

If actually TN , it could be a mark in the lost smallworker register of Thomas Nash whose first known registered marks are 1759. Although in the PR 1773 as a bucklemaker he does not seem to have left many buckles behind - this is the only TN seen.

Otherwise no suspects
