This is a very rare buckle! This is the stamped copper belt buckle that would have been worn by a member of the Louisiana militia. This is the exact belt buckle that was used for the illustration of Plate #293 on page 162 of the Expanded Edition of the Stave Mullinax book on Confederate Belt Buckles & Plates. These are pre-Civil War production that would date from about 1845 to 1855. In the center of the buckle it has the famous image of the mother pelican feeding her young. This is the classic state seal of the great state of Louisiana. The face of the buckle was silver plated which must have been a stunning display piece when it was new. On the reverse of the buckle it utilized an applied keeper hook as well as the belt loop bar. The loop bar is still intact. In the book they list this one as a rarity of 10+ because it is the only known buckle of its style that survives. It also states that this one was excavated near Richmond, Virginia. This buckle came from the award winning collection of Don Phillips. His Confederate Belt Buckle display won numerous awards at the biggest Civil War shows across the country. This is your chance to own a buckle from his "Best of Show" award winning collection.
