Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a cool belt buckle that doesn't cost a fortune! It is an original Civil War U.S. soldier's waist belt buckle. The face of the plate has the classic bold "US" lettering. When you turn the plate over you see the interesting part. This is the pattern of buckle that is listed as figure #501 in the O'Donnell and Campbell buckle book. They are very distinctive because of the way that the hooks are produced on the back. In the lead fill of the back you can see that the arrow style belt hooks are riveted to the tongue portion of the hooks. The book notes that this is the 1862 production that was the first widespread use of the arrow style hooks. We got this one from a collection and he had altered the buckle back in the 1960's. He removed the hooks so he could solder new ones in place to be used with a belt he to use it with. It is priced accordingly. This is a fine plate that you can tell was worn quite a bit by the soldier.
