Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a fantastic piece! This is the actual buckle from the book. This buckle is the rare version that is illustrated as Plate 247 in the O'Donnell and Campbell's buckle book. They state that this is the noncommissioned officers version that was used from 1833 until 1839. These buckles are very distinctive because the 2 main pieces are connected by an "S" shape link in the center. One of the buckle pieces has the classic union Eagle with the arrows of war in one Talon and the branch of peace in the other. The other side has the the vividly clear "US" with the crossed rifles in the center. The brass of the buckle is a gorgeous untouched color that displays superbly. They note that when it was illustrated for the book, it came from the fantastic collection of Norm Flayderman. Mr. Flayderman was one of the pioneering collectors and authors of many reference books including the Bowie Knife Book and the Guide to Antique Arms. It is a wonderful piece as you can see!
