30 DAY NO QUESTIONS ASKED RETURN GUARANTEE For offer100% authenticDug U.S. Union Civil Waroriginal period U.S. small, oval brass waist belt buckle plate!!!Referred to as a regulation 1839 Pattern Infantry enlisted variant, circa, 1850's pre to early Civil War. Interestingly, this example of belt plate was also worn by U.S. enlisted Dragoons on their saber belts prior to the Civil War. The almost flat, oval plate measures about 2 3/4" x 1 5/8" with construction that features a die-struck, rolled brass face with letters "U S" prominent in the center face. The backside of the accoutrement is filled with lead and displays a continuous single iron wire set of belt hooks embedded in the lead. The two belt hooks are positioned behind the letter "S" as found in Dragoon accoutrements.I was told by the finder of this Civil War relic that it was dug in the late 1970's in Kansas City Kansas around 95th and Antioch.Condition:
A fine coating of slight surface rust is seen on these iron hooks. The small US plate is not in perfect condition with some of the lead backing and parts of the brass plate edge corroded away. The piece does exhibit a dark, bronze dusky patina on the face surface. Scattered areas of dark oxidation also highlight the piece and add a bit of character to this artifact. A classic example of an US waist belt plate from the pre and early Civil War period.
