Click on an image to enlarge
This is a scarce version of an excellent original small size U.S. Belt buckle. This is the model of 1839 which is often referred to by collectors as the "baby" U.S. because of the size. This fine non-dug example has a perfect set of hooks in the back. The hooks are what is special about this buckle. Instead of the standard brass hooks this is the early pattern that has the thin iron wire hooks and all three are intact. This is the pattern that is illustrated as plate 519 of the O'Donnell & Campbell buckle book. He states that they were only made from 1839 until 1844. There have been buckle of this type excavated in Civil War campsites as they were worn by soldiers utilizing older military goods. The face is just as nice with a gorgeous dark tone with clear "US" letters. This will make a fine addition to any collection.
