Model 1851 Non-Comissioned Officer's Belt and Buckle

This is a very fine example of a Model 1851 N.C.O. belt and cast brass Eagle sword belt plate.  The belt is in excellent condition and remains pliable with Inspector's cartouche.  The Eagle sword belt plate has a very pretty, rich, aged, bronze patina.  The silver wreath remains 100% intact.

US Oval Belt Buckle on Original Leather Belt

Absolutely stunning US buckle on brown leather belt.  This one was most likely non-issued.  Leather is pliable and there are no tears, breaks, or bends.  Top of the line speciman for your collection.  

Price: $695


Model 1851 Union Sword Belt Plate

This is a Union Sword belt plate in beautiful non excavated condition.  It is cast brass with applied silver wreaths.  The keeper still has a piece of belt attached.  The patina on the buckle and the keeper are a little different so I'm not 100% sure they have always been together but it is the correct keeper and displays beautifully.

Price: $450


Union Carbine Sling Buckle and "Batwing"

This is a nice carbine sling buckle with brass belt tip or "batwing" as it is commonly known.  It has a nice woodsy patina and all 4 brass pins remain on the batwing.  The two tongues move freely on the sling buckle.  These were recovered together in the vicinity of Ft. Donelson.

Price: $160


Model 1839 "Baby" U.S. Buckle

Non Excavated model 1839 U.S. Buckle commonly calld the "Baby" U.S. buckle.  This speciman is in very good condition.  The arrow hook on the back has been shaved down and it can be clearly seen where that was done.  Given the even patina across the reverse of the plate the alteration was done 150+ years ago.  It would be hard to upgrade from this one.

Price: $425


Non-dug U.S. Oval Buckle

This is a solid buckle with a rich bronze aged patina.  Some dimpling on the front from period use and obvious belt marks on the reverse.  If you want a non-dug buckle that shows good, honest use, this is it!

Price:  $235
