Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great looking belt and buckle with cap box. It is an original Civil War eagle sword belt. This is the pattern that has the buff leather style belt. The belt has a very nice "used but not abused" look to it. It even has the original brass size adjustment hook. The buckle itself has the beautiful spread wing eagle in the center with the "E PLURIBUS UNUM" ribbon above her. This is the pattern with the three piece style German silver wreath added for display. The majority, about 80% of the wreath is present with a fine untouched look. The back of the buckle has the "284" bench number stamped into it and the keeper has the number "650". The numbers do not match but they fit together quite well as you can see. On the inside of the belt it has the stenciled "Co. G. 17th. Regt. I.C. No. 37." . This is the marking of the Invalid Corps that would be later known as the Veteran Reserve Corps starting in March 18th 1864. So we know this belt would have been issued earlier than March of 1864 and would have been issued to a soldier that had already served his country. The belt comes with the soldier's percussion cap box. The box has a great look with the "17" brass regimental numbers applied to the outer flap. Between the numbers, it has initials that appear to be "T.F.R." When you open the flap, you see the clear maker's marking of the firm of Emerson Gaylord of Chicopee, Massachusetts. This is a great looking belt and cap box for your relic room shelf.
