This is a gorgeous belt buckle. It is the 2-piece officer's sword belt buckle from just before the Civil War. This buckle is the pattern of buckle that is illustrated as figure #296 of the buckle book by O'Donnell and Campbell on page #199. It has the beautiful union eagle in the center of the buckle tongue disk. The ornate floral wreath has beautiful detail. These are made of cast brass for the wreath and the tongue. It has the integrally cast disk on the tongue bar that has the eagle. They state that this plate dates from 1855 until about 1860. This one has the matching "17" stamps that they mention in the book. This would have been the mold pattern number at the factory. The buckle is still attached to the original high quality black leather belt. The belt has the "bullet" style stitching on the wreath side of the belt. On the inside of the belt it has the original length adjuster remaining and it is in excellent shape. This is a gorgeous buckle that is nice enough for any collection or museum!
