Click on an image to enlarge

This is a tough to find Confederate belt buckle on an original belt! It is the pattern that is known to collectors as they "Breckenridge" pattern of C.S. belt buckle. They get their nickname because many of the buckles that were excavated in the early years of relic hunting came from sites occupied by members of Confederate General Breckenridge's soldiers. But as the book states the greatest number of these buckles were found in Tennessee, Georgia and other Western sites. This is the version that is illustrated as figure #148 in the revised edition of the Mullinax book on Confederate Belt Buckles & Plates. It is made of a sheet of brass that was stamped. As he states in the description in the book, many of these had light strikes that made the "CS" lettering harder to see. On the reverse of the buckle it has all three of the original hooks remaining. The hooks on these plates are interesting as the makers used the scrap brass that was left over from stamping the face of the buckle to construct the hooks. You often hear the hooks on these referred to by collectors as being "Scrap Brass Hooks". The buckle has been put onto a Confederate pigskin leather belt for display purposes. It looks beautiful as you can see. This is a fine looking original Breckenridge style Confederate buckle on an original Confederate belt.
