This is a gorgeous shoulder belt plate! It is the shoulder belt plate from just before the Civil War. This one is like the one photographed in the Civil War belt Buckle book by O'Donnell and Campbell. This buckle is like the buckle that is illustrated as figure #735 of the buckle book on page #446. They state that this plate would have been worn by a member of a militia group and is likely for the "City Guard" and could have also been for the other groups like the City Greys or Cleveland Grays and others. They add that this plate would have been made about 1850. It has the beautiful "CG" letters in the center. The letters are made out of German silver and the plate itself is made out of rolled brass. This is a gorgeous buckle that displays superbly!
