Here is a cool looking set! This is a belt rig set that would have been worn by one of the regular fighting men of the Civil War. This is a great looking original Civil War soldier's belt and buckle. You can tell that the soldier used this one for quite a while which gave it a wonderful look. It has a fine original U.S. belt buckle with letters that stand out for a great look. On the back of the plate it has all three of the belt hooks remaining. This is the style that has the arrow style hooks on the back of the buckle. The buckle is accompanied by an original black bridle leather belt. The belt displays well and it has the wear you expect one to have that saw a lot of service but it is still nice and pliable. The belt even has the original brass length adjuster remaining. On the belt it has an original Civil War soldier's cartridge box. This is the classic .58 caliber style that was designed to be used with the .58 caliber Springfield rifles that were so heavily used during the Civil War. The outer flap still has the remnants of the embossed "US" lettering. When you raise the outer flap you are greeted by the traces of the "H.W. OLIVER PITTSBURGH-PA" mark on the flap of the implement compartment. These Oliver boxes were made without the standard inner flap and since they didn't use the inner flap they would sew the "ears" directly onto the outer flap. The "ears" are both present on this one. The box has the Civil War maker mark of H.W. Oliver from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. According to the maker book Oliver only had army contracts for cartridge boxes in 1863 and 1864. That lets us know that this one is definitely a Civil War production cartridge box. The innermost compartment no longer has the two tins intact. On the bottom of the box it has one of the original roller buckle as well as the finial and the original closure tab. It also has the leather percussion cap box for a Civil War musket, pistol or carbine. It displays well from all angles. It has the inner flap that has the U.S. government inspector stamp. This is where they approved the piece to be used by the military. The inner flap has the faint traces of maker's mark from the firm of R. Nece of Philadelphia. On the innermost compartment it has some of the original lamb's wool removed that was designed to keep the percussion caps from falling out as well as the vent pick to clean out the weapon's nipple. On the back of the box it has both of the original leather belt loops still solidly intact.You get the belt and buckle as well as the original cartridge box and cap box. This is a nice looking set!
