This is a superb displaying original Civil War eagle pattern belt buckle. This is the pattern known to collectors as the "Panel Plate”. These were often worn by the state guards and militias during the mid 1800’s. This is the tougher to find version that has the shield in the chest of the eagle. The edge of the buckle has the star design around the top and sides with the branches down below. The face of the buckle has a gorgeous mellow color. It was constructed by stamping a sheet of brass and soldering the belt loop and keeper hook onto the back of the plate. There is a brass version illustrated as figure 401 in the O’Donnell & Campbell buckle book. They states that these buckles were made from about 1845 until 1860. This one has the narrow style keeper hook which is correct for the earlier pattern buckles. The other side has the original belt loop intact. It is a very nice looking buckle that will enhance any collection.
