Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a fine looking original Civil War made soldiers belt and buckle. This is the highly sought after version that was worn by a Confederate soldier from the state of Louisiana. The face of the buckle has the distinctive and proud great seal of the state of Louisiana which depicts the mother pelican feeding her young. The spread wing pelican sits in the nest with the baby pelicans and around their image it has the stars and wreath encircling them. The buckle is made using the stamped brass face and it has lot the left hand edge as you see in the images and it is priced accordingly. Then they used solder to apply the attachment hooks that are also made of brass. As you can see the buckle has one of the original attachment hooks intact. The buckle is missing the edge but what is present has had NO RESTORATIONS of any kind. This is the pattern of buckle that is illustrated as plate number 285 in the revised edition of the book entitled Confederate Belt Buckles And Plates by Steve Mullinax. An excellent one of these can bring over $5,000 these days, you can own this one for less than half of that. The verbal history that accompanied the piece is that it was recovered years ago in Georgia near the battle of Utoy Creek. The Battle of Utoy Creek was fought August 4–7, 1864, during the Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War. Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman's Union armies had partially encircled the city of Atlanta, Georgia, which was being held by Confederate forces under the command of General John Bell Hood. Sherman had at this point adopted a strategy of attacking the railroad lines into Atlanta, hoping to cut off his enemies' supplies. This was the third direct attack on Confederate positions during the campaign and the effect of success would have ended the siege and won Atlanta on 6 August 1864. This is a good looking Civil War Louisiana state seal belt buckle that is still affordable.
