This is one of the prettiest and best built buckles of the Civil War era. It is the style that was worn by the Governor's Horse Guard of New Haven, Connecticut. They did not muster into federal service during the Civil War but would have been available for local emergencies according to O'Donnell and Campbell's buckle book. This pattern is pictured as figure 698 on page 419 of that book. They list the dates of manufacture on these plates form 1865 until about 1880. The plate is made of a cast frame with a stippled background. It has the "GHG" monogram letter affixed to the center of the plate by brass wires. The plate is in beautiful shape all the way around. It comes with a keeper that fits it like a glove but the numbers don't match. You get the buckle and the keeper for $195.00

Price: $195.00 USD (Sale Pending)
