Excavated Militia Belt Plate circa 1812

This is a nice example of a less common early militia belt plate.  It has a nice dark chocolate patina and no repairs.  This is the same as figure #169 in the Kerksis book.  The two iron belt keepers on the reverse have rusted away though a small portion of one remains.  The belt attachment bar is separated on one end but still remains sturdy.  This is a very nice example of a rarer style 1812 militia plate.

Price: $595


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 nice condition non-dug lead filled U.S. oval belt buckle.  Given the finish on the face of this one, someone many years ago tried to shine it up with Brasso.  The face is beginning to patina back out but that doesn't detract from this beauty.  It is of the arrow hook variety and displays nicely.

Price: $245


Dug U.S. Oval Belt Buckle

Dug lead filled U.S. belt plate of the arrow hook variety.  Greenish brown patina. About 90% lead remaining and some light flaking of the brass around the edges.  One rust spot on the reverse but not shown through on the front.  This buckle has the left handed hook attachments.  A good solid dug plate for a reasonable price.

Price: SOLD

Price:  $235


Non-dug / early battlefield pick up U.S. Oval Buckle

This particular buckle looks like an early battlefield pick up.  If it was an early pick up there is no known recovery location.  It has the appearance of being out in the elements for a period of time but not in the ground.  This one has the arrow hook attachments and there is one small area of rust on the reverse.  A good solid common plate of the Civil War.
