Scarce Excavated Alabama Volunteer Corps Belt Buckle with Original Leather
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very tough to find original Southern used belt buckle. This is the one that was used by a member of the Alabama Volunteer Corp. This version is illustrated as plate 218 on page 123 of the Confederate Belt Buckle and Plate book by Steve Mullinax. The face of the plate has the thick version of block style letters "AVC" which stands for the Alabama Volunteer Corps. Mullinax notes that this is version that is most often found in Western Theater battle sites. This one has the clear lettering on the face with a pleasing look. When it was excavated, the edges has some nicks and chips. We had it expertly restored for display and preservation. On the reverse of the buckle it has the original lead remaining. It is designed to utilize the style of hooks referred to by collectors as the "Puppy Paw" Hooks. All three of the attachment hooks are intact on the reverse. It also has a section of the original leather from the soldier's belt remaining. The last couple of pictures show the piece how it looked before we had it restored. This is a fine looking rare belt buckle from Alabama that is priced about half of what a perfect one will bring these days.
